Visiting a Bird Magnet in KL

Saturday, January 23, 2016
Various species have been attracted to the fruiting trees in KL. Although I did get the info a few days earlier but never got the chance / time to visit until last Monday. OK due to my very tight schedule, I arrived at the site later than I had planned. Did I miss any birds? Maybe or maybe not (not on that day).

A pair of Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker provide some excitement for the morning.

Among other species sighted include Banded Woodpecker, Common Flameback, Black-headed Bulbul, Red-eyed Bulbul, Yellow-vented Bulbul, Crimson-breasted Flowerpecker, Raffles's Malkoha, Blue-throated Bee-eater, Scarlet Minivet, Crested Serpent Eagle, Brown Shrike, and Asian Brown Flycatcher.

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.
