|Moderate light, a bird flew (undulating flight) into vegetation about 15m distant, emerged briefly on a bare spike and was seen through binoculars for a few seconds before flying away rapidly into nearby canopy. It appeared to be a light green all over without any other obvious specific feature from which I deduced it was a female lesser green leafbird. I know this is not much of a sighting. It was certainly a leafbird, only probably a female lesser.|
|Canopy level. We were sitting on the second level of the tower from the top down. The light was behind us.|
|Observer's experience w/similar species|
|Once saw a male Greater Green Leafbird at Dairy Farm. This was confirmed by two other birders. Have seen numerous golden-fronted leafbirds in Thailand, Kaen Krachan NP.|
