  • Blue-headed and Black & Crimson Pitta - At Borneo Rainforest Lodge
  • 8 species of Hornbills
  • Whitehead's Broadbill
  • Black-throated Wren-Babbler
  • Fulvous-chested Jungle Flycatcher - A pair seen at Poring Hot Spring
  • Thick-billed Flowerpecker
  • Whitehead's Spiderhunter - Usual place at Tambunan :)
