Verditer Flycatcher

Verditer Flycatcher is probably one of the flycatcher one will see first in the moutain area. However this species is more easily seen up in the mountain then lowland though many times i have seen them lowland. This will post a danger of identification between the male Pale Blue Flycatcher to the Verditer flycatcher. One will have to be careful. Here is a male Verditer flycatcher.

Golden Throated Barbet

A upper montane species. Many ask me if i have seen this species lower down. Technically yes. I have a few encounter in Fraser's Hill. And that is probably the lowest i have encounter them. However this remain to be a rare sight. :)

So it is a yes and no. Yes you can see at fraser and no you cant encounter them easily. Whole last year we only encounter this species one in fraser's so it is definitely not common.

Lesser Shortwing

One tiny little feller which can be a challenge in some location. However not that difficult in some places well i wont say it is easy too. Still a nice bird to see. Usually respond by male and male sighting way more then female. The lesser shortwing is probably to me one of the most entertaining species to find.

Yellow Eared Spiderhunter

I was on work when all the fuss about the Scarlet breasted flowerpecker and a few rarity. I decided all this is going to be miss out from me. Anyway continuing working i manage to track down a Scarlet Breasted Flowerpecker while working. DAMN  while working again. For those who know i never bring my camera out while working. So i decided to head back today with my camera having my work just finish but little pecker did not wait so is many of my target species i needed when i saw it while working. We nailed 4 spiderhunter yesterday I only manage to capture one today which is the Yellow Eared. Well not too bad considering this one was up in the canopy and took a while of searching.

Dusky Eagle Owl

Probably listed one of the rarest owl in Peninsula Malaysia once. Still rare and seen in restricted area especially near peat swamp this species have been sure getting its attention they deserve. In recent year at least within 10 years time the increase of sighting of this species in P.Malaysia especially in selangor area bring both good news and bad news for us. Hopefully this species remain in our country and increase in its number.
