Found my Missing Digiscoping Adapter!

Monday, December 19, 2011

I finally found the misplaced digiscoping adapter. It was hidden under the car seat all this while. Today, when passing by a small pond, there were 41 Painted Storks so I decided to stop for a digiscoping session. Darn...I forgot that I was wearing a striking colored shirt!!! So, these big guys doesn't allow me to shoot - they flew off as I tried to get close to them. But the Eurasian Tree Sparrow perched for a few seconds and here are a few resized, slightly cropped and USM image.

Apart from the 41 storks and a few ET sparrow, there were also 4 Little Egret, 5 Cattle Egret, dozens of Javan and Common Myna, House Crow, 2 Pipit, 6 Peaceful Dove and 1 Brown Shrike.

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.
