05.07.2018 - Birding at Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam

This is place is very much well known for most birders. I bagged few lifers here during my previous visits. My recent visit was with the MSN Selangor Branch Bird Group members on 18.08.2018.

I was told that 4 species of green pigeons were found here by the seniors; the Little, the Pink Necked, Thick Billed and the Jambu. I only manage to view 2 of them.

You may encounter these 3 bulbuls easily here; The Yellow Vented...obviously, Olive winged and Red Eyed.

A female Blue Winged Leafbird (Chloropsis cochinchinensis)

A male Dark Necked Tailorbird (Orthotomus astrogularis) in non breeding plumage.

What I missed here....the Brown Barbet, The Spectacled Spiderhunter and Black Winged Flycatcher Shrike due to poor lighting. Plus a small group of Long Tailed Parakeets, chased away by a group of noisy students.

Just becareful with the Pig Tailed Macaque a.k.a "Beruk" near the paddy field area. They can be aggressive. In case if you are moving alone, just be extra watchful for these guys.
