Digiscoping: 15 November 2011, Kuala Lumpur

Tuesday, November 15, 2011




Another usual evening going through heavy traffic after work. But since I have my digiscoping gears in the car, I decided to make a visit to a quiet park located between office and home. Immediately after exiting the highway, a pair of woodpecker flew in front of me - what a delightful welcome. Arriving at the park, the usual suspects were perching high up on the tall trees. A pair of Black-thighed Falconet have been sighted during my first visit and other subsequent visits. Meanwhile, Coppersmith Barbet was calling from the perch near where I parked my car.



All photos taken with Omicron Spotting Scope 80ED Harrier, Nikon P5100 camera and Cheang Kum Seng's digiscoping adapter.

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.
