    ....Birds and Birding in Malaysia

      byKoji Tagi. Malaysia is located  in the near equator. The climate is humid throughout the year. Tall trees grow more than 50 meters from the ground and wide variety of trees forms dense and dark tropical forest, "jungle". This site introduces the lowland forest birds, the birds of the cool hill stations, the birds of the coastal mangroves and open country, as well as introducing the major birding spots in the Peninsular Malaysia. Go here! Many photos.

    ....Parit Jawa - A haven for the Lesser Adjutant 

      Tucked away on the western coast of the State of Johor, Malaysia, lies a small town called Parit Jawa.  Comprising little more than a few dusty streets with crumbling colonial shophouses, Parit Jawa may one day be a mecca for local bird enthusiasts.   For if you follow the one-kilometre road that leads down to the fishing village, and walk to the end of the wooden jetty, there is a high chance that you will be able to see one of the rarest storks in the world, the Lesser Adjutant.

    ....The Kinabatangan Rainforest Wetland -

      It is the largest remaining    forested floodplain in Sabah. Originating in southwestern Sabah, the Kinabatangan River flows for 560 kilometres (347 miles) through eastern Sabah to the Sulu Sea.   The lower Kinabatangan contains some of the few remaining freshwater swamp rainforests and lakes in all of Southeast Asia.  These evergreen swamp rainforests are crucial for conservation.

      This trip report is provided    courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. November 4-17, 1995 - byRob Goldbach, Taking into account that we had only 3 days to spend in this bird-rich country, we chose to visit 2 important areas rather close to Kuala Lumpur and the Subang international airport: Fraser's Hill (including "The Gap") and the Nature Park ("Taman Alam") Kuala Selangor.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore.

      This trip report  is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. May 10-23, 1996 byKeith and Lindsay Fisher. Birdwatching in Malaysia proved to be a great experience when we visited there in May 1996. In two weeks we travelled between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taman Negara, Frasers Hill and Kuala Selangor -- which gave us a good variety of habitats. The Malay Peninsular, including Singapore, has a total of 639 species of birds of which 426 are classified as residents and just two as endemics. We saw a total of 170 species of which 135 were new birds for us.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia,

      March 15 - April 5, 1997 bySusan  Myers. We visited four sites (five if you count Fraser's Hill and The Gap as separate locations) over 23 days. This encompassed three habitat types -- mangrove/woodland, lowland rainforest and montane/submontane forest. All the places we visited are within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur. See also Susan's 2000 reports from Sabah and Peninsular Malaysia.

    ....Trip Report: Sabah, Borneo

      August, 1997 - byWayne Hsu.  I always felt jealous about how I've never had such exciting birding trips when I travel with a tour group; so I asked my parents to let me go on one birding trip somewhere in South East Asia before I graduate from high school. After much persuasion, they finally agreed, and I chose to go on the Wild Bird Society of Taipei's foreign birding trip to Sabah, Malaysia and Borneo during my summer vacation. I was very grateful and very excited, for this is my first real birding trip outside Taiwan.

    ....Trip Report: Malaysia, September, 1997 - byTom and Marie Tarrant.

      During September, 1997, we returned to the UK with a trwo-week satopever in Malaysia, and managed to visit three main sites: Kuala Selangor, Bukit Fraser (Fraser's Hill) and Teman Negara. This is a brief description of the wildlife seen during that period.

    ....Peninsular Malaysia, March 8-31, 1998.

      This trip report is provided  courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. byDavid Geale. A detailed account of a serious three weeks of birding. Great trip! Also a more anecdotal report of the same trip.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia, June 10-29, 1998

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. byAidan G. Kelly. For western travellers, now is a good time to visit SE Asia as the Asian economic crisis means that exchange rates are very attractive.

    ....Trip Report: Malaysia, July 3 and 16-21, 1998.

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. byPeter N. Thompson. This is a short account of two birding stopovers in Malaysia on my way between Johannesburg and Sydney. Apart from being one of the cheapest routes between South Africa and Australia, it is probably also the birdiest. See also Peter's May 1997 Trip Report.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia

      September 1998 - byKeith Regan and Nick Watmough. Our work and family commitments largely dictated the timing of this trip. September is not the optimum time to visit the peninsula, although it is before the rainy season. We only had 10 days and with hindsight we should have tried for a full fortnight in order to have a couple more days at Taman Negara and we should have spent the night at the Gap Resthouse for the birding at lower altitudes.

    ....Trip Report: Malaysia, Australia, Bali (Indonesia).

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. November 26 - December 22, 1998 - byRobert Payne. The major problem experienced was the torrential rain that seems to occur about mid-afternoon - this waws rather detrimental to birdwatching! 

    ,,,
    ....Trip Report: Sabah (Malaysian Borneo).

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. June 10 - 27, 1999 - by Aidan G. Kelly. The East Malaysian state of Sabah in north east Borneo offers the most accessible birding on the island of Borneo. Sabah together with the neighboring state of Sarawak are semi-autonomous regions in the federation of Malaysia. The remainder of Borneo consists of the Indonesian region of Kalimantan and the state of Brunei.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia.

      This trip report is provided  courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. July 3 - August 5, 1999 - byWim Veraghtert. July is not the best month to visit Peninsular Malaysia. July is characterized bya lack of fruiting trees; many trees were flowering, as August is a fruiting month. The lack of fruiting trees had also a negative influence on our species list (especially for some families, such as doves, flowerpeckers, barbets, ...). Though, we still managed to get more than 300 species on our list.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia, March 7-13 1999.

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. byGraham Tebb. When booking flights in connection with a trip to the Philippines I found myself unable to return to Vienna immediately because all the cheap seats were already taken. The fastest route back would have had me stay in Malaysia for three days awaiting a connection, so we decided that Christine would fly out from Vienna to join me and we should have a week's holiday. This is a report of where we went, what we did and what we saw in that time.

    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia.

      This trip report is provided  courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. October 1999 - byPhil Benstead. These notes describe a brief trip made to the highlands of Peninsular Malaysia during a recent BirdLife conference.

    ....Trip Report: Sabah, Borneo (Malaysia)

      February-March 2000 - by Susan Myers. This shortish report may help independent birders with preparations for your trip or with finding some of the birds once you get there. We found Sabah a breeze to travel around albeit rather more expensive than many parts of Asia. The birding was out of this world. We recorded over 230 species in 17 days. See also the continuation of Susan's trip to Penisular Malaysia

    ,,,
    ....Trip Report: Sabah, Borneo (Malaysia).

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. April, 2000 - byJohn Penhallurick.  If I were going again, I would go a month earlier. Although there would be more rain in March, bymid-April the pittas and things like wren-nabblers were very unresponsive.

    ,,,
    ....Trip Report: Peninsular Malaysia and southern Thailand.

      This trip  report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. April-May 2000 - byChris Gooddie. Chris Gooddie and three fellow UK birders, Kit Britten, Bob Harris, and Graham Hogan, put together a trip to combine 4 sites in Malaysia - Taman Negara, Fraser's Hill, The Gap and Kuala Selangor - with a short visit to Khao Nor Chuchi and Krabi in Thailand (principally to look for Gurney's Pitta). Trip total was 295 species (and 11 more heard), including 7 species of pitta - a major target for us, so we were delighted to clean up (except for Giant Pitta which we didn't really expect to score). 

    ,,,
    ....Trip Report: Panti Forest, Johor.

      This trip report is provided courtesy of Urs Geiser's Trip Report Archive. June 2000 - byPeter Ericsson. The Panti Forest is in Malaysia, but only a dozen or so miles past the little town of Kota Tinggi. It is an easy drive from Singapore, varying from one to two hours depending on the traffic crossing the causeway. Since being discovered and pioneered some years back, some hard-core birders from Singapore have faithfully returned to this lowland rainforest again and again, finding an endless number of bird species.

    ....Malaysia Birding Diary 

      April 11 - May 14, 2001. byBill & Doreen Stair. The continuing saga of our year-long, theoretically low budget, round the world birding trip... A couple of weeks on Peninsular Malaysia and then two more in Borneo in search of Bornean endemics and Sundan specialties. Malaysia has to be one of the easiest countries in South Easy Asia to get around - everyone seems to speak English, and the public transport network is cheap and easy.   Unfortunately, everything else is relatively expensive, so prices came as something of a shock after Thailand. Any attempt to economize bybuying foodstuffs and consuming them in your room should take into consideration the large, cheerful and fearless rats that inhabit the national parks.

    ....Trip Report: Singapore, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Java, Flores, 

      Rinca and Komodo Islands. May 24 - August 4, 2001.- byAndy Adcock. As I've benefitted many times from other peoples efforts in producing reports, I thought I'd have a go. This report contains systematic bird lists for Malaysia and Indonesia (319 species) and the Wallacean Islands (84 species).
