Pintail Snipe

Same as this one.. my confident level is actually below acceptable at least to myself. Still we believe this was actually Pintail Snipe. Swintail is some one rather put it if they do not know if it was a pintail or swinhoes. Still if anyone know batter please correct me with the id.

Common Snipe

Snipe is one of the bird i guess most of us have hard time identifying. This is not easy when we do not see them in flight or seeing ones tail fan out. This one was seen near to our car and was identified as Common. Honestly if you really ask me my confident level i think this is still less than 50% perhaps equal to it.

Indian Roller

It is not easy when one food stuck to the mouth and you cant do anything much about it to get it into your mouth right. This what happen to this Indian Roller. The beetle somewhat grip on to the ill of the Roller when the roller attack it. Well the beetle survive only after some real irritating work for the Roller. :)

Imperial Eagle (6th Plumage type)

Imperial Eagle is probably the largest migratory raptor for the country taking out the account of the vulture. :) This magnificent was sighted as early as the 80's in places like sekinchan ricefiled. I have personally see all three aquila in sekinchan ricefiled too. However this time around and in recent year Imperial Eagle have been getting regular. Perhaps they may get from rare to uncommon soon.

Grey-Headed Lapwing

The only two lapwing in the country both were observed during this outing. I would say not a bad day for us in photography. Still finding one with great background can be a bit challenging. Well nothing come easy if not we never learn. So i try to do my best still.

Brown Shrike

A common migrant in Malaysia. This species is not difficult to encounter however at time we our self are ignorant about the identification. At time some juvenile may look like a tiger shrike. Nevertheless today we observed one perching by the side not far from the car.

Yellow Vented Bulbul

While staying at home through the weekend and have nothing much to do after work, it is nice to take up some recent shot to look at. This Yellow vented bulbul was a common lowland species. Recently it have become easier to encounter up in places like Fraser's Hill. I still remember I encounter one up in genting highland 10 years ago while i was working up there.

Whiskered Tern

This tern is probably one of the most commonest to be observed apart from the White-Winged Tern. Once in the right location and the right time you wander why you find them hard .A photograph is a different story all together. Though there were a few hundred of them around finding one as i shot previously in Selangor was not easy. I still able to find one nearby with a little action for photograph after waiting for rather a long while.

Baya Weaver

Baya Weaver is one species we always wish the nest is in our house. Their structure was amazing thing to look at. Though building one is a hard work but i guess it is worth it when it can even prevent cuckoo from pirating the nest. Especially for those older male with experience.

Yellow Wagtail

Yellow Wagtail a rather common species to be observed. This location has no exception. This species was almost seen every where we were. Well at least one worth trying a shot at.

Oriental Pied Hornbill

Oriental Pied Hornbill was technically my 6 last hornbill in my list and was not the first. This species after recorded first time in my list seem to keep on turning up. Well at his worse once a month. Still small it can be and dull in colour it can be this is still amazing bird to observed. This time after the Plover, and I'm still fighting for light I made my stop by the road side and take some of this shot.

Little Ringed Plover

This was not a a best time to be at the place. Lightning and thunder all over the place and it started drizzling. Lighting was very poor and bird are moving non stop. However one decided to be at the bund I was at so I manage to get a few shot of this feller while it stood still after running away from my car.
