Taiga Flycatcher

As new year starts, i got a sms from choo eng that he sighted a Taiga flycatcher at Bukit Wang,Kedah together with Mun. What a coincident that the next weekend, i'm going back to my wife's hometown in kedah. I decided to give it a try. When i arrive i've already saw the Taiga but...


i saw this cat n i know it will make my photography session today a bit difficult. It chase the bird into the forest as it tried to catch them. But after some waiting n patience game....



The bird was quite cooperative during early morning but the light was a bit poor. So this is my best shot. Hope i can come back for some improvement. Some other bird that i saw,


Asian brown flycatcher which i thought was another Taiga at first! Hehe...



Grey wagtail



Two forest wagtail. And a surprise,not a bird but a mammals.



This mongoose suddenly come out from the forest edge to forage for food at the rubbish bin. I've yet to identify it and will update here once i sort it out.

This place turn out to be a very good birding spot but during weekends there a lot of visitors around. I hope to come back soon...
