As I said in the previous entry that I did not take part in the race, but just having fun and showing my friend Razak Ramli and Hairie what bird photography is all about.
We went to Abu Suradi trail and managed to shots a few birds, no new bird/lifer for me today.
This is a view at Jalan Pecah Batu Fraser’s Hill, in front of the Tamil Primary School.

That’s me sporting the new binocular harness, in front of the closing ceremony stage. The prizes and medal presentation of Bird Race was held at 2.30pm .
I visited the exhibition booths and met Jason Tan from Trifid Optical Supplies and brought a lens pen from him. There I also met our hardworking organizer of the event Dato’ Shafik Fauzan, Pahang Tourism, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman. Then I bought a binocular harness and MNS Cap at Malaysian Nature Society booth. That “Bin Harness” will relieve the stress on my neck from the weight of heavy binocular.
This pic of Little Pied Flycatcher was taken at the roadside – at roundabout near the children’s play ground. This tiny (12cm) bird perched on Melastoma tree and was so obliging, allowing us to take pictures for a few minutes. My friend was so excited to see this.
