Bukit Tinggi & Krau Bird Watching

Sunday, March 18, 2018

2 sites in a day. Possible. But make sure keep track of the time. Met a few avid birders in the highland where we were targeting the Mountain Peacock Pheasant and Ferruginous Partridge. DIPPED on the partridge! We left around 9-10am after getting no sign of the partridge. The info I received from other local photographers who stayed on until middle of the day, the partridge eventually came out but very very late. Oh well, we need to cover another site which is another 1 - 1.5 hours away from the highland. Target in the lowland forest.....Rail-babbler. But instead we were rewarded with several babblers, bulbuls and a magnificent view of a Green Broadbill!

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.
