Kemensah Birding Trip – That’s my World

My Word TuesdayClick the above LOGO for more participation from all over the world.

I went for half day bird photography at Kemensah, Selangor with Madibirder, Ilyas and ZZlalog last Sunday.
Arrived at Zoo Negara front gate at 7.00am, and met Madi there. After a breakfast of roti canai telor (prata bread with egg) , we went straight to Pasun trail.
Here are a few pictures for my record.

Ha.., here are the birders / bird photographers -‘Penembak burung
Penembak BurungZZlalog with his Russian made Tair-33 300mm manual focus lens. Very unusual focusing knob/wheel below the lens. I respect him for using that.
BirderIlyas eyes wide open – searching for any movement of the leaves.
Kaki BurungThis was my 2nd LIFER that day – GREEN IORA (Aegithina viridissima)
Sorry, for poor quality of this picture. We were not so lucky to have a very few lifer. Never mind, there is always a next trip.
Green IoraThis elevation profile shows 12.1km distance travelled. The actual birding distance covered was less than that, maybe 6 km.
