Sunday, November 4, 2018

A short weekend trip to look for "new" species to Genting Highlands and Krau forest. From an early morning drive away from KL, we arrived at our first destination, up in the highlands at 7.30am. Gosh. The visibility was terrible, nevertheless, we prepared the equipment for the morning shooting.

Tom and Joyce Birding Day near KL - 22 October 2018

Friday, November 2, 2018

Met Tom and Joyce at the airport hotel. We arrived at our birding site just before sunrise. We had Savannah Nightjar circling above us and a Large-tailed Nightjar calling not too far away. Then, as we were about to continue our drive, we sighted a dark morph Changeable Hawk-Eagle. Not bad for a start! For the morning, we managed some views of Common Flameback, Laced Woodpecker, Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker, Stork-billed Kingfisher, White-throated Kingfisher, Collared Kingfisher, Blue-tailed Bee-eater, Red-wattled Lapwing, Long-tailed Shrike, Pink-necked Pigeon, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Chestnut-winged Cuckoo, and many more. 

In the late morning, we head towards the inland. Just before lunch, we added Painted Stork. After lunch break, we went birding in a lowland forest. We were surprised as soon as we stepped into the forest! Raffles's Malkoha greeted us. But our main target is a Rufous-backed Kingfisher, which we managed after some amount of time spent waiting. 

Overall, this is another successful birding day near Kuala Lumpur.

Sue birding in KL - 1 November 2018

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Today, we went birding around Kuala Lumpur. Our initial plan was to go up to Fraser's Hill, however, I suggested Kuala Lumpur due to the current weather condition in Fraser's Hill which may affect the birding experience.

After picking up Linda and Yong from the airport, we made our way to the hill station, Fraser's Hill and we arrive just in time for some birding action and our primary target, Malaysian Partridge were already in the bag by the end of the day. I'm glad we got this partridge on the first day, as the visibility for the next 2 days were not so great. :(

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.
