Thursday, January 18, 2018

During this 12-days tour, we had most of our birding affected by unfavorable weather condition, lots of rain and mist. We were made to work harder than usual to get views of our target birds. Some species eventually made it into the trip list.

Jan birding in Fraser's Hill

"I had a great day with Wengchun in Frasers Hill. He knows the site very well and is very, very enthusiastic about birds. He really put in a lot of effort to show me as many birds as possible and to put me on a bird when I could not find it. In my opinion he is doing a superb job as a birdguide and it was a pleasure birding with Wengchun. I would definetly recommend him!" - Jan, Germany

This is the first visit for Jan to this region. Apart from covering Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, I had the opportunity to show him around Fraser's Hill. We drove up to the hill station very early in the morning so that we can get to see some of the finest birds. Weather wise, it is not the best, but we just need to proceed with the plan - birding. No one should leave Fraser's Hill without seeing Silver-eared Mesia and Rufous-browed Flycatcher. Both with its own distinct features that capture our attention.

Silver-eared Mesia

Apart from the Silver-eared Mesia, some of the other species we have observed: Long-tailed Sibia, Chestnut-capped Laughinthrush, Chestnut-crowned Laughingthrush, Little Pied Flycatcher, Rufous-browed Flycatcher, Streaked Spiderhunter, Black-throated Sunbird, Malayan Partridge, Common Green Magpie and Wreathed Hornbill.

One of the few squirrels we encountered during the day trip is a Grey-bellied Squirrel.

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. When I go out to the field, I will usually have my Kowa 10x32 BDXD binocular, iPhone and Kowa TSN-501 spotting scope with me. This is the lightest setup for me as I prefer to go light these days. Although sometimes, I will (and I need to) take out my Nikon 10x42 Monarch binocular, Nikon ED82 spotting scope, Nikon1 V1 setup for specific targets.

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.

Bird Video

I am also interested to take video of birds. Here are some of my favorite videos for your viewing. Video taken with Nikon1 V1 attached to a Sigma 500mm f4.5 and most of the time iPhone SE through the spotting scope. Editing is done on smartphone Power Director for Android device and I also like the iMovie on iPhone. Enjoy.
