Someone got a Lifer

Sunday, July 16, 2017
It is always good to meet Ding Li again and go birding with him. After a good quick breakfast, we made our way to the stakeout up in the highland. We arrived a little late but lucky to spot our target for the trip.

This is our target! Ferruginous Partridge

Someone got a lifer from the trail head. OK. done, let's go, bro! Not quite, we continued to wait at the stakeout - hoping to get another better view. No luck. only managed to get the Mountain Peacock Pheasant.

Next we drove to a lowland forest and reconnected with a species we saw together in Taman Negara many years ago.

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.
