Birding in North East Monsoon Rain


November to March is a raining season  in Malaysia,  especially those in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Heavy rain not yet affected here in Raub  (located in the center Malay Peninsular), but light rain in the evening becomes a norm now.
That doesn’t prevent me from taking a bird picture.
The picture below shows the characteristic of a tapioca leaves, water repellent in the light  drizzling rain.
