Broadbills
Broadbills are well represented in Borneo, which has two magnificent species found nowhere else in the world. As the name suggests, broadbills can be recognised by their heavy broad bills, often brightly coloured; many of them have the most beautiful plumage, but as they are rather stolid and lethargic birds of the dense tropical forest, they are not often seen except for one species-the ubiquitous Black-and-Red Broadbill. (Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)
