Fraser's Hill 7th-8th January 2017

Monday, January 9, 2017

It was certainly another great trip to Fraser's Hill. Never fail to impress any of my guests for last 10 years and this site has been my favorite for almost 20 years since my first visit to the hill station. Despite the inconsistent weather, we managed to get almost all that we have targeted for this trip including the 2 species of trogon, glimpse of Malayan Whistling Thush (and I believe the 2 bigger looking thrush early in the morning were Blue Whistling Thrush as I have recorded them during my trip last month), 2 species of Shrike-babbler, tailorbirds, and a soaring Blyth's Hawk-Eagle. For me personally, the highlight for this trip are Green Broadbill on the first day and Brown Fulvetta on the second day.

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.
