White-tailed Robin
Murai Ekor Putih – Cinclidium leucurum
18 cm. Unmistakable. Photo shows male; female has black replaced with dark brown.

This bird is not easy to observe at Fraser’s Hill and good views are even more difficult. An upper montane specialist, this hill is probably a bit too low for it. Look for it along the Telekom Loop and the forest trails, as it rarely comes out to the roads. Skulks on, or near the ground, but is desperately shy.
