Lesser Shortwing with Nikon V1 + Nikkor CX 70-300mm VR

We missed the sunrise, but luckily we did not miss the birds. As soon as we arrived, we stationed ourselves at designated area for observing and taking photos of birds. The weather in the first hour was almost perfect, but slowly the mist approaches and ruined the session. After a few minutes the mist has cleared and we get good light! (darn it! speak too soon), another round of mist....

Nevertheless, we secured some of our target species along with a pair of Snowy-browed Flycatcher.

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 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.
