I spotted the black baza when I was birding at my usual birding ground. It was afternoon(my lunch break) at the last week of November 2008. It was black like a crow, but the flight and the way it swoop down to catch prey wasnt crow like. Looks like a raptor to me.. So I went to this patch more frequently than others.
My first shot was this
not so clear but enough to confirm its a black baza. There a a pair of them, not like a flock that was described. maybe some circumstances makes it made the stopover at my patch..
so the subsequent week i try to track them until on December 5 finally got a better picture.
it makes worth of my time.. to see this bird in my patch where the usual bird are yellow-vented bulbuls, crows and mynas. area is overgrown abandoned buiding project in middle of residential and industrial area, subang jaya. few minutes from where i work.
