Mangrove in Klang

Tuesday, August 7, 2012
After a long period without photography, I drove towards the mangrove (1 hour from home) and meet up with Jason. We have been trying to go for an outing for a long time and our intention for the day is to nail the Mangrove Pitta. We heard the pitta calling at 2 different spots, unfortunately none show up. We found a pair of Stork-billed Kingfisher perching near the Blue-throated Bee-eater nesting area. The above photo was taken with a Nikon J1 + Nikon 300mm f4 with the help of the red dot spotter.

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 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.
