Hot Spot: Penampang Paddy Field

Penampang Paddy field is fast becoming a hot spot for birding nowadays. Rare and new birds recorded one after another...from the rails to the munias, the starlings and to to the avadavats, and who knows what's next!

A bunch of people in green with binos and cameras in their hands is now a common sight by the highway...Before, motorists would slow down and check out what was happening...maybe even wondering what these crazy people are doing...

If you are one of those people, we are trying very hard to take the best photos..with the best of our ability and push our luck and gear for these beauties;-

Jordan, excellent collection. The first photo shows bird almost like one here we have, probably from heron family. Hope all is well with you otherwise. Anna :)

Thanks to ur site, I managed to get 2 lifers at the site; the Red Avadavat, and what I think is the buff banded rail although the pic for the second was so poor I might be wrong.

But will return there often as the place is still quite nearby.
