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.

They are well socialized, having been raised in our home as members of our
own family in order for them to become ready to be a member of yours.
They are quite comfortable around all ages, including the elderly and young children.
When you purchase a bird from Us, we are committed to offering lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

Hand Raised Parrots for Sale, Macaw Parrots for Sale
Macaws are playful and active and they have excited personalities to go along with their sizes.
But this also makes them very challenging pets. They do have the ability to say words and mimic
our speech but it is not as clear as some other pet bird species.
Because they are so intelligent, macaws can be trained. You can start when your pet bird is young,
and work on hand-feeding, teaching your bird to talk or sing, and training your macaw not to nip, bite, or scream.
