Asian Bird Festival 2019 Post Tour

1st -10th October 2019

Delegates from China, Taiwan, Canada and Costa Rica spent for a week in Sabah after the Asian Bird Festival in Kuching Sarawak. We covered Mt. Kinabalu, Sepilok, Kinabatangan River and Danum Valley with highlight species such as Helmeted Hornbill, Large Frogmouth, Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Bornean Falconet and Crested Jay. No Pitta was seen during the trip including the rare Bornean Bristlehead!
