Kinabalu National Park: There Are More Than Just The Eyebrowed Jungle Flycatcher

I had been under the spell of the Eyebrowed Jungle Flycatcher for a long time.

As I was gradually recovering, I once again started to venture further and to different places of the jungle trails in the park. I discovered a few potential spots for birding.

Spotting birds activities is easy specially for the common ones along the trails, but photographing them with a 300mm?? You guess...

Frankly speaking, I like it a lot when I'm trekking alone in the jungle trails. Sounds of the chirping birds, water flowing form the stream, smells of the wild...never gets tired from that all... When the camera stayed idle, I wouldn't mind so much.

Anyway, I have not been blogging as active as I had. I intend to make up for that, no worries. Today, pictures taken from Nov 8th, 2009. The Hair-Crested Drongo was a lifer, female White-Browed Shortwing was intended goal and the Indigo Flycatcher supposedly be "Bird as art" material( If you can call it that!)... :)

Thanks all...

Rose, thanks for your visit. It's a bit challenging to get action shots at KNP where the light rarely helps. However, when luck is at ur side...it's going to be really rewarding!
