Family Of White-Breasted Waterhen

19th February 2009



Few shot of this resident Waterhen together with four chicks at the Wetland Centre hehehe. During my birding years, I've never encountered tame Waterhen before, but at the Centre, they came quite close sometimes except for the chicks :)

Hope the new ones will survive !

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, SRB-Griturn Mk II adapter and Fujifilm F31D





Happy family


This Rail is found through out Sabah and considered common resident but a bit shy and they used to be hunt during the WWII by the locals to survived during the Japanese Occupation because food was scare that time.

Happy birding !

Great shots, only seen on the southern subtropical islands in Japan (where I've never been alas).
