The Golden-fronted Leafbird is a beautiful bird as it is green. Well, some gold, blue, and some black makes the bird recognizable as it goes inside thick leaves on a tree. It takes a little while to find it as the bird itself is a perfect camouflage, no need extra tricks, just being green is more than enough to hide from predators or other birds hanging around. The first time I saw this bird in Khao Laem National Park, I was so amused and confused at the same time, I thought I was looking at moving leaves and then I realized that they were Leafbirds, and there were at least fourteen of them in that flock.
