A Triller in the garden

Pied Triller (Lalage nigra) - Sewah Kapas (Malay)

This is male of the species Lalage nigra - Sewah Kapas (Malay)
It has black wings with large white patch on coverts.  Underparts are white.  Bill, legs and feet are brown.
Surprise is a mild word.  It's really thrilling to see the Pied Triller came by the garden this morning.  This is the first time in my birding experience to have met the Triller.  I have never seen it in Bintulu.  And of all the places it showed itself in the Kambatik garden in Kuching.  It is not really a common bird in Sarawak and it was merely coincidental that I managed to photoshoot it this morning.  It was having a brief rest on the Tabebuia rosea branch and I happened to be just nearby for a close range shot.
