Awana-Old Pump House Road, (Genting Highlands) revisited

Genting Highlands is now included as an official IBA or Important Bird Area. It has received the joint endorsement of Bird Life International and Malaysian Nature Society (MNS). This birding cum recreation spot have also received good reviews for being the home of  many interesting avian life species, both residents and migratory. My personal birding experience in this sub-montane site is that it never fails to surprise on every trip. There are always new specie/s to add to the list of birds I have 'digitally captured' from earlier trips. A recent revisit resulted in the following birds captured. I am happy to share them with all visitors to my blog. Enjoy!
