Day Trips to Fraser's Hill March 2017

Saturday, March 11, 2017
"I had one of my most memorable birding trips in my life thanks to Wengchun with whom I went on a full day birding trip from KL to Frasers Hill. Wengchun picked me up early in the morning and it was a pleasure to chat with him. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I told him that the red headed trogon was on my wish list and we birded the whole day and i got more than what i wished for !! I had 40 lifers in this trip including some real beauties including the red headed trogon, Mugimaki flycatcher, Large Niltava, Rufous-browed Flycatcher, Silver-eared Mesia and many more
On the whole wengchun is someone who would make any birders day great and i would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone who has a day to spare to see the avian wonders of malaysia !!!" - Dr Gopi, India

Done 2 day trips to Fraser's Hill for 2 separate guests. Both wanted to take photographs. I realized now that I am having more guests that came to Malaysia not only to see the birds but some were here to take photographs.

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.

Equipment

I use a spotting scope from Omicron for my bird guiding trips and digiscoping. You can get more information from their website at http://omicron-optics.com The spotting scope is placed on a Feisol tripod and Manfrotto 701 video head. This is an ideal setup for me due to its light weight. A customized eyepiece adapter to my Nikon P5100 was fabricated by Cheang Kum Seng from Ipoh, Perak. Very useful during my guiding trips because I get to take photos of birds sighted and post them on my Nature2pixel website. Binocular is the most essential tools for bird watching and guiding. I used to have a Minox 8x42 but have given it to a friend since I upgraded to Nikon 8x42 Monarch. Update: May 2014 - Could be time for me to upgrade to a Kowa 10x42 BD XD which is more compact? I came across this website showing a review of the Nikon D4S at http://www.aaronstours.com
