Back to hunt for more birds

Friday, December 8, 2017

Lothar is back again. Together we went 'hunting' for target species early in the morning until afternoon. We only spent time looking around our usual birding grounds. Plenty of birds came out to greet us including Black-and-Yellow Broadbill, Black-and-Red Broadbill, Black Magpie, Dark-sided Flycatcher, Pale Blue Flycatcher, Ferruginous Flycatcher, Arctic Warbler, Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrike, Pin Striped Tit-babbler, Hairy-backed Bulbul, Stripe-throated Bulbul, Buff-vented Bulbul, Yellow-breasted Flowerpecker, Yellow-eared Spiderhunter, Spectacled Spiderhunter, Little Green Pigeon, White-bellied Sea-eagle, Blue-tailed Bee-eater, Oriental Magpie Robin, Banded Woodpecker, Maroon Woodpecker, White-chested Babbler and others. But the highlights would be the 2 species of Hornbills and the kingfisher....

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.
