Birding Couple from Taiwan 1st - 7th April 2018

Monday, April 9, 2018

"This is the first time for my wife and I to visit Peninsular Malaysia, and we want a professional guide to strengthen the success of this trip, so we contact Weng Chun for the arrangement. He answered our questions quickly, also tried to understand the way we used to birding and take photos, also given a detail plan for us, we had a very good first impression and decided to have this tip with him. As flexible birders we brought binoculars and hand-held camera gears without tripods. Weng Chun adjusted the trip plan with more flexibility to meet our demands, which made us to see and take photos of more bird species even some tough targets.  He also paid lot of attention to our food and accommodation situation and make sure we're fine and comfortable for all the logistic arrangement, very considerate. Weng Chun has expertise and rich knowledge as a birding guide, and also excellent eyesignt and hearing that always can find hidden birds or calling, which helped us to find a lot new species that we were not aware, so impressive! In a word, we quite enjoyed this 7-days fruitful trip with Weng Chun, couldn't be better. If you want a professional birding tour guide in Peninsular Malaysia, Weng Chun is highly recommended!" - Jimmy, Taiwan

I only guided 2 birders. This photo at the top of this post shows my guests were surrounded by 2 big groups of photographers from China and Taiwan, as well as 2 local couples.  For 7 days, we covered the highlands, lowland forest and coastal grassland / patches of mangrove trees. Lots of good birds because we managed to cover more grounds walking around without tripods. Ok, I had a tripod but it was a lightweight tripod for my spotting scope. :D

Birds & Wildlife in Malaysia

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.
