Birding Tamara Negara: Malaysia

Oriental Magpie Robin

This National Park is a lowland rain forest, with a range of services available, from camping to more luxurious arrangements.

The trip in is 3 hours by boat down the Trembeling River, and a few bird species can be seen from the boat, particularly Kingfishers.

The area around the resort has a number of excellent trails as well as some blinds. The resort area itself was good for Oriental Magpie Robin, Pink-necked Pigeon,and Oriental Hornbill.
There is a canopy walkway which gets you up at eye level with many species¬† and it is well worth a visit. It unfortunately was not open at ideal times for birders (10 AM to 2PM), and the operators¬† seem happier if you don’t linger. The best canopy bird was a Wallace’s Hawk Eagle which perched on a branch only a dozen meters in front of me.

It rained very heavily every night for 5-6 hours, but only a little during the day. This resulted in very muddy slippery trails, and made birding hard work, but well worth the effort.
