Birding with Jay and Amy

8th - 23rd June 2016



They were on a 2 months birding trip in Asia and started the journey in Sabah, Borneo. Few days at Danum Valley Field Centre then to Kinabatangan River and the trip ended in Kota Kinabalu. We missed some of the endemics such as Mountain Serpent Eagle, Bornean Ground Cuckoo, Bornean Barbet, Fruithunter and Bornean Leafbird plus the Bare-headed Laughingthrush despite trying it on the usual spots for a few times.

They are currently in Thailand then to West Malaysia and last at Sulawesi. Good luck!

One way to ID Nest-Swiftlet at Gomantong Cave is with the Swarovski STX65 spotting scope. We managed to get the Edible, Black and Mossy Nest-Swiftlet.
