Mangrove and Lowland Forest August 2017

Sunday, October 22, 2017
It's been a while since myself and Thomas go out "hunting" for birds. So we decided to revisit the same sites which we had visited in the past to look for the birds that we missed out. In the morning, we were in the mangrove looking for Mangrove Blue Flycatcher, Mangrove Whistler and Cinereous Tit while in the afternoon we were already in Ulu Langat.

Black-and-Yellow Broadbill is the most commonly encountered birds during our trips.

Violet Cuckoo. Got an update from a fellow birders, so we quickly make a dash to the site.

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.
