3 Days in Fraser's Hill with a pro-ecotourism

Sunday, September 10, 2017

A pleasant birding trip to Fraser's Hill. We have covered the hill station, old road, new road and the Gap. Our birding starts after we finished breakfast in KKB, as soon as the sun rises, we managed to get the species in open area including 3 species of cuckoos - Plaintive, Banded Bay and Little Bronze in less than 30 minutes which David was so amazed!

It was not David's first visit to Fraser's Hill. But he would like to see the species he had seen before as well as some of the species that he missed previously. Well, he did get what he wanted .... forktail, nuthatch, shortwing, flycatcher, partridge, magpie, cuckooshrike, and many more.

We ended the trip with 2 Whiskered Treeswift!

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.
