Pasir Ris Park 18th Nov 2019


My first visit to famous spot for Sunda Scops Owl in Singapore. Thanks a bunch to John! We tried looking for the owl upon arrival, no luck. Then, we walked the whole park and saw several other birds including Crested Goshawk and Oriental Pied Hornbill. We bumped into Alvin, the most regular birder in the park and he tipped us on the current spot for the owl. We went back to the area and finally John found the bird! Alrighty!!!

Singapore Bird Race 17th Nov 2019


It feels good to be back in Singapore and join the bird race after a lapse of 14 years (I think). Time flies. 

This time I teamed up with Dr Yong, Jamie and Darrel. We followed Dr Yong's suggestion and covered 3 birding sites. In the end, we saw 60 species, although not enough to win the race, it was good fun. 

....till next time, Singapore....

I went down to Singapore a day before the bird race. Coincidentally, there were sightings of 2 species - the first is a Fairy Pitta and then a Daurian Redstart. With the help of my team members for the race, we headed to the trail for Fairy Pitta before dawn. Dipped on this one. Next, we tried the Redstart and we nailed down this one.

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 nature2pixel@gmail.com 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.
