Bornean Clouded Leopard At Danum Valley

25th - 28th December 2008

Did not see the Bornean Clouded Leopard except its foot prints at the river bank which was found by other guides few days ago and the Giant Pitta was responding to my call within 10 metres but could not see the bird itself ...

Notable species seen
  • Bornean Banded Pitta
  • Great-billed Heron
  • Large-billed Blue Flycatcher
  • White-fronted Falconet
  • Flat-headed Cat
  • Banded Civet
Some of my shots at one of the best place in Asia for birding + other amazing wildlife and the forest itself :)
