Birds os Sabah

30th July - 10th August 2018



As part of their yearly holidays, Peter and Martina decided to spent birding in Sabah covering the usual hot spots at Mt. Kinabalu, Sepilok, Kinabatangan River and Danum Valley. Both are keen photographers and managed to capture some of the rare species found here too.

Highlight species:
  • Bornean Pygmy Elephant at Tenegang tributary
  • North Grey Gibbon, eye level view from the Global Atmosphere Watch Tower 
  • Helmeted Hornbill were seen calling from the fruiting tree at Danum Valley
  • Giant Pitta showed well at Danum Valley
  • Bornean Bristlehead near the Borneo Rhino Centre
  • Rufous-collared Kingfisher at Sepilok
  • Everett's Thrush with great sound recording too!
  • Scarlet-breasted Flowerpecker at Mt. Silam near the observation tower

Some of the recording during the trip (click on the link):

The Red-throated Barbet is such a striking looking bird. I love how large her beak is as well as the blue feathers around her face. Thanks for the share, hope you have a fantastic weekend. Keep up the posts.

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.
