26th - 29th August 2010
One of the bird seen daily visiting the red flower that grow near the restaurant at Tabin Wildlife Reserve recently with Naturetrek group from UK led by a good friend of mine, Chris Kehoe. Had a great time birding with them especially along the mud volcano trail with key species such as Large Green Pigeon, Thick-billed Green Pigeon (my 2nd sighting), heard both Banded and Giant Pitta too !
They are currently at Mt. Kinabalu for their extension tour until this Saturday. I will be staying for few nights at the mountain from the 1st - 3rd September with Ck and a birder from England :)
