The Belgian d'Uccle Bantam is a true bantam with no full sized counterpart. As the name suggests.
Seen at The Gap and also a large flock on Bukit Larut. The bird is cobby and should be small, with males weighing approximately - grams and hens roughly grams.
It resembles, in looks and behaviour, an overweight Pipit.
Seen several times during the various trail pacings of Taman Negara. Wear a blindfold at all times if you don't want to see one.
A stunning and most unusually coloured bird, being a combination of greys, reds and yellows. We finally saw them in good numbers at Kuala Selangor, and once I had identified the call I realised that they had been singing from the trees outside our friends' apartment in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur
