Bird Count in Putrajaya Wetland

Monday, October 10, 2011
During the last garden bird count, I went to my regular site - Putrajaya. Here are some of the birds that I never get tired of watching.


Purple Heron like any other species here are very obliging.


Then a Cattle Egret flew over to a perch near where I was standing allowing me for a few seconds to aim and shoot. After managing to get 3 to 4 shots, the bird flew away.


There were numerous nests of Purple Heron, Grey Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron and Painted Stork on the trees. Several juveniles are sighted nearby.


Here is a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron that perched near where the Cattle Egret was perching a while ago.

About Me

I'm a bird watcher, digiscoper, photographer and a licensed nature guide. Welcome to my 'A Malaysian Birder' blog. I will post my bird sightings and photographs on this blog. I started bird watching while studying in university. After graduating with a degree in forestry specializing in parks and recreation management, I have been attached to the parks and gardens industry. My past work experiences involve conducting environmental education program, bird watching and many more.

Bird Watching Tours

There are quite a number of birding groups from Australia, United States and United Kingdom that come over to Malaysia annually visiting the traditional key sites that include Kuala Selangor, Fraser's Hill and Taman Negara. There is not doubt that the 3 sites are the preferred birding sites in Peninsular Malaysia. So if you are coming over for birding and intend to hire a guide, you can send me an email at nature2pixel@gmail.com and go over to posting section to view photos and summary of trip reports with testimonials from past clients.

Besides following the traditional route, I also customized trip according to clients needs, preference and interests. So there are some local patches that I can introduce to all bird watchers, digiscopers and photographers.
