Digiscoping: 17 November 2011, Bangi

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Before going into the office, I dropped by at the same park in Bangi very early this morning. Waited for the Starlings at the same Casuarina tree but unfortunately, they only flew by and did not perch. Then, I went to another section of the park and heard Asian Glossy Starling. This is actually a mix flock of Asian Glossy Starling and Purple-backed Starling. BINGO!

All photos taken with Omicron Spotting Scope 80ED Harrier, Nikon P5100 camera and Cheang Kum Seng's digiscoping adapter. Zoom with the camera is limited to 25%-50%

Birds & Wildlife in Malaysia

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 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.
