Pygmy Wren-Babbler (Pnoepyga pusilla) only 9cm. Strictly montane. Extremely difficult to see, it behaves like a small mouse scuttling on the forest floor and build its nest on the damp hilly side. This is the smallest bird in Malaysia and has no tail. The shot was taken only in my second attempt. The first trip to Fraser Hill in early December 2012 was a 2 days wait in vain.
