RDC- Rainforest Discovery Centre (Sandakan-Borneo Sabah)

Crested Serpent Eagle / spilornis cheela
Friends, its been a great Bird festival this year. Everyone seem to agree. Including the birds.
Here are few pictures to share and enjoy.

Copper-throated Sunbird / leptocoma calcostetha

Juvenile White Crown Shama / copsychus stricklandii

Rufous-collared Kingfisher / actenodies concretus , just patiently waiting to be photograph.


It was a hot day (2nd day of bird festival) Rufous-winged Philentoma / philentoma pyrhoptera having a bath.



Greater Racket-tailed Drongo / dicrurus paradiseus, posing but flew quickly when it was attracting a crowd.
Ruddy Kingfiher / halcyon coromanda

The prize bird this year. Birders with or without digiscope just could not stay away from the site it was perching, hoping to get a glimpse. Even professional and amateur photographer flock to get a picture. It was all worth the waiting.


Crimson Sunbird / aethopyga siparaja
This was photograph outside the visitor building of Sepilok Orang Utan Centre. Its a personal achievement for me because I can never get it with digiscope. Use Nikon D3oo with Sigma 70-300mm APO lens.
Black and Yellow Broadbill / eurylaimus ochromalus

This is a female, both sexes looks similar but can be differentiate with the female does not have complete breast-band.
On a final note, any one who are interested to visit Rainforest Discovery Centre especially birders and photographer. I can be contact as per my contact reference in my blog.

Happy Birding.
