Green Broadbill (Calyptomena viridis)

Also known as the lesser green broadbill, the green broadbill is a species of broadbill (Eurylaimidae) which occurs in broadleaved evergreen forests in BOrneo, Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula. They are also known to occur in lowland and lower montane rainforests as well. Green broadbills generally occupy the canopy, where they feed almost exclusively on soft figs. To the point where they are a major aid in helping fig seeds distribute around the forest floor.

Spot-breasted Parrotbill (Paradoxornis guttaticollis)

…a species of Old World warbler (Slyviidae) which occurs in the countries of Bangladesh, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Like other parrotbils Paradoxornis guttaticollis feeds mainly on insects but will take seeds and buds as well.

Winter Wren on Grenadier Pond, High Park, Toronto (early February, evening,    -17° C)

Per unit weight, the Winter Wren delivers its song with 10 times more power than a crowing rooster.

Where the ranges of the Pacific Wren and Winter Wren come together, in British Columbia, the two almost identical species sing different songs. The males battle each other, but the females seem to only choose mates that sing “their” song—keeping interbreeding to a minimum.

White-rumped Shama (Copsychus malabaricus)

…a small and charismatic species of Old World flycatcher (Muscicapidae) that is native to southern and southeastern Asia. Multiple subspecies exist, the nominate occurs in the Western Ghats and parts of southern India, C. m. leggei is known from Sri Lanka and C. m. indicus occurs in the northern parts of India. C. m. albiventris which occurs on the Anadaman Islands is often considered a separate species. C. m. interpositus occurs from southwestern Asia-China to Myanmar to the Mergui Archipelago. C. m. minor occurs in southern China and C. m. mallopercnus is known from the Malay peninsula. tricolor can be found in Sumatra, Java, and surrounding islands. And the subspecies C. m. mirabilis occurs in the Sunda Strait and C. m. melanurus from northwestern Sumatra. Ten other forms exist! (C. m. opisthopelus, javanus, omissus, ochroptilus,abbotti, eumesus, suavis , nigricauda, stricklandii and barbouri ) all occurring on distinct islands. stricklandii and barbouri are often treated as a separate species, the white-crowned shama (C. stricklandii)

White-rumped shamas typically occur in dense undergrowth, with a slight affinity for bamboo forests when present. White-rumped shamas, like other flycatchers feed mainly on insects, but will rarely take other items. Despite their impressive distribution, white-rumped shamas are popular in the pet trade and have been  introduced into Hawaii where they have become established.

Green-tailed Sunbird (Aethopyga nipalensis)

…a species of Sunbird (Nectariniidae) which occurs across the northern part of the Indian subcontinent eastward into Southeast Asia and parts of Indonesia. Green-tailed sunbirds typically inhabit temperate forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.  Since the Old-World lacks hummingbirds the green-tailed sunbird, like other sunbirds feeds almost exclusively on the nectar of flowers, but will take insects as well.
