We set off at 545am from KL heading to Bukit Tinggi for a few hours’ birding, seeking the mountain peacock pheasant, ferruginous partridge, orange breasted trogon…….hopes were high…as I’d heard a lot about this place and we were being brought there by an expert…..
It’s about an hour’s drive up a twisting winding road till you get to the botanic gardens….and then we walked into the area where the mountain peacock pheasant was known to be….
We saw a beautiful pair of great hornbills swooshing overhead, heard the sultan tit and orange breasted trogon but couldn’t see them….no sign of our main targets either…prob a result of the overnight rain…we finally moved to the botanic gardens where we got some nice shots of a juvenile tiger shrike.
So we ultimately were unable to see my target birds this morning 😦 …but it was still a fun outing with a few good sightings…
