Birding in Borneo V

Day 2  Kinabalu Park - II

Dark-sided Flycatcher

This tiny flycatcher was sitting there quietly. How on earth did Osman spot him, I wonder!

When we were moving from one place to another, our driver, Julius spotted something in a tree by the road, which turned out to be a Grey-rumped Treeswift!

We had a good view of him through the scope as he didn't move even an inch while we were watching him.

Mt Kinabalu - awesome mountain!

local vegetable & fruit stores

After we checked in, this handsome fellow visited us in the garden.

Bornean Whistling Thrush

Osman told us the local university students ring birds in Kinabalu Park.

A squirrel again:)

We saw many interesting birds on that day but unfortunately we only managed to catch a glimpse of many of them, no chance for a photo...
