My Long-tailed Broadbill Hahaha :p

9th February 2009



Drove early this morning with Andy from York, England to Tambunan Rafflesia Centre for Bornean endemics such as Mountain and Bornean Barbet (Heard only ...), but had a good view of Cinereus and Bornean Bulbul with Bornean Leafbird.

Besra and Blyth's Hawk Eagle was a bonus for today's trip.

And one particular star bird seen was this !


Long-tailed Broadbill


Hahaha my first picture of this uncommon bird in Borneo and my last sighting of this species was last year together with the Gang, but it was only brief. Shot taken with my lovely Sony Ericsson K660i cellphone hand held to the scope hehehe :p

After breakfast, saw another pair at the beginning of the trail :)

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



Bornean Swiftlet, recent split from Cave Swiftlet digiscoped at Gunung Alab Restaurant


Happy birding !

Whoa, Jason, that is an excellent shot of Long-tailed Broadbill! Would love to see that species at the Rafflesia Center in March. Was this pic taken along the road or in the center itself?

Cheers,
Sander

Great Pictures.
Thanks fro blogging them.
Is there any official site to share observations here in Sabah?

I want to share a sighting of Storm's Storks from 8/2 2009 over Kinabatangan area. In all 8 individuals.

Hio Torven, I'm in the process of creating a software for bird database that is found in Borneo. I will inform you when it is completed :)

Aha Sander, it was along the main road after the Centre :)
