Greater Painted Snipe







Initially wanted to bird early this morning, eversince I was informed by Karim @sinooorita that a pair of Greater Painted Snipe was spotted at my favourite birding site (Penampang highway bypass), But only decided to do it in the afternoon instead, which turn out to be favourable to me. Not only a Painted Snipe but a pair and guarding it nest with 1 egg.


At the same area a Slaty Breasted Rail was spotted trying to cross to the other side of the rice field and this shot was taken in a rush, so it's a poor picture. But anyway it's for identification purpose.

Feeling happy with the find, decided to share it with friends, called Karim, CK, Jason @Nazri, Ben D but only Karim and CK could come.

Not long later both came and managed to photograph it before the sun sets in.

List of bird sighted at the same area.
*Moor Hen x 6
*Crested Myna x 3
*White Breasted Waterhen x 4
*Cinnamon Bittern x 2
*Wood Sandpiper x Several

Happy Birding.
