It was very cloudy, but I made the decision to go, as I was afraid Friday will rain, apparently it did not. But there were a lot of birds yesterday, or more like I noticed many more birds as the camera had a better zoom. That is the good thing about using camera zooms instead of a binoculars zoom, you can find the bird easier.
As we walked into the nature reserve, I did not see any birds. I tried to find the hooded pitta fruitlessly by doing that pit-pit whistle. Did not even work. I heard a low gaw gaw towards the water edge, but did not see a thing.
I saw an unknown bird on the way. Can’t identify it, but got quite a good picture.
Can anyone help me identify?
Then, I moved on to the road beside the forest, did not see any thick billed pigeons, but saw a squirrel. I am suprised on its agility.
At the ranger station, it started to rain, then, we went to the ranger station for shelter. I did some birdwatching there, with my camera in the shelter but the birds outside. Took a picture of it, but face was covered a bit.
If you can identify it, please comment.
I also saw an unknown tailorbird
Should be a tailorbird
I also saw the asian fairy bluebird.
At last, the rain stopped. We headed back. On the way back, I saw about six greater racket tailed drongos.
I saw more birds than before. I always see more birds than before and I think it is because I know where are the good birding spots.
