Birding with Fred and Charlie

15th - 30th May 2017



Charlie and Fred spent around 15 days in Sabah for wildlife sound recording. The journey started from Kota Kinabalu International Airport then to Mt. Kinabalu for a few days exploring the national park. Visited Sayap and Poring Substation then another few rainy nights at Gunung Alab Substation, Tambunan. While at Tambunan, it rained most afternoon, so activity were done only in the morning and one evening for the nocturnal species. Missed the Whitehead's Broadbill and Spiderhunter but great recordings for other montane birds especially the Whitehead's Trogon

At Kinabatangan River and Danum Valley, one of the best place in the country for lowland wildlife, we got the Bornean Pygmy Elephant and Pitta species. They are currently at Bakalan, Sarawak with Yeo before flying back to Australia.

Key species heard:
  • Whitehead's Trogon
  • Bornean Spiderhunter
  • White-necked Babbler
  • Bornean Barbet
  • Mountain Serpent Eagle
  • Bornean Gibbon
