Orange-headed Thrush

Got this bird after 3rd. outing. Friends have been going to the place where this bird is and came back home with lovely nice pictures of it. I was just felt sad and disappointed to myself for failing not even a glance of it for first 2 outings. Then when I was having few photos of this bird, I was feeling relief and just happy. With it my collection goes to 347 species shoot in Borneo. And location where this bird I got is at Rafflesia Centre,  Tambunan, Sabah Borneo, Malaysia...


Happy birding.

Pitta and Flycatcher

April 28, 2012 two more lifers added to my bird list now counting to 341. Quite challenging to photograph these birds as one in dark while the other fast moving while catching flies in the air.

Happy birding...

Horsfield's Babbler

It seem I manage to get a new bird to add to my bird list everytime I go birding this year. My number to new birds hard to go up last year whereas this year few birds already added.
I can not tell this bird in the field other than babbler but the sound and the color of the bird is the only my guide helping me to identify at home through book. It hard to photograph it because it moved from one small branch to another of almost non-stop jumping. It is my 337th. collection of the year 2012.

Happy birding.

Sunda Bush Warbler

Recently birding with friends at Crocker Range Park, Tambunan. Upon reaching up there the weather was so windy and foggy. Luckily condition was better just for while and managed to shot this bird. It was so active and most of the time under and inside the bushes.


Happy birding.

Dusky Broadbill

It is my lifer for the new year 2012. I have been collecting 335th. birds shot in Borneo. They were 5 altogether seen and four of these birds I quess just newly fully grown and still lead by one adult which a parent. As observe 4 birds were always together and one kept its distance away. The 4 birds were also keeping making sound which indicating where they were or calling the parent.

Happy birding.
