Bukit Fraser birding pt 1

Fraser Hill 15Dec2010.

Went to Fraser hill birding for the first time, tried one of the trails regulars mentioned by birders.

A Drongo greeted us at the entrance of Hemnant trail and made numerous appearance along the trail.

Dicrurus remifer

Lifer Niltava next, before the flash batteries decided to make a fuss. Seen another lifer Laughing thrush, but it was too quick for the camera. Was eager to bump into the mascots of FH, heard the characteristic call of the broadbill (ascending note like a helicopter starting the engine!).

  1. The Drongo is a Lesser by the shape of the trailing tail feathers

  2. Thanks Madi for the ID, that makes 101 birds for 2010.
