Today target is (again) the Crimson Sunbird, Purple-throated Sunbird and Black-and-Red Broadbill. However, we managed to secure 2 targets out of 3. No sign of the Purple-throated Sunbird. The guest today may not be interested with dark or dull birds, but I saw the 2 White-vented Myna again in the morning, this time within the park. I was also excited to see Plaintive Cuckoo at a close range, perched much lower than what I have seen on my previous trip to this park.

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.
