We call this species “KALAW.” Birdlife says this forest-dependent species is considered Near Threatened as it is suspected to be declining moderately rapidly throughout its range as a result of habitat loss and persecution by hunters and trappers.

This shot was about 200 meters away! This is 450% enlarged!
