To attend to other more pressing ‘distractions’ I had put away this blog and have forgotten to post it! So here goes the forgotten one!
This visit to Awana, Genting Highlands, Malaysia saw some of the warmest weather ever experienced in a this hill resort nestled at approximately 4000ft above sea level! The heat was so bad that by mid-day one would not want to be out in the open. The sun was as intense as one experience in the lowlands during this time of day. The heat quite naturally took it’s toll on a rather poor selection of birds in this favorite ‘hunting ground’ amongst avid birders.
Below are some photos of the birds captured on camera during this visit.
A Paddy Field Pipit
An Orange-bellied Leaf bird (Male)
Scaly-breasted Munias (Juveniles)
The Yellow-vented Bul Bul
A pair of Stripe-throated Bul Buls
A Large Wood Shrike
Oriental Magpie Robin with caterpillar.
Thanks for dropping by. Cheers!
