HOW "TWEET" IT IS, GO BIRDING!
Birding, after all, is just a game. Going beyond that
is what is important.
Bird watching is a great outdoor hobby enjoyed indoors. There are various locations in Sabah where bird enthusiasts could do birding.
Known to have the richest habitat, the most number of bird species can be found in this habitat in Borneo. There are a few prime bird watching areas in Sabah with this terrain, such as, Danum Valley Conservation Area, Tabin Wildlife Reserve both located in Lahad Datu, Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) in Sandakan and Poring Hot Springs in Ranau.
For birders, this type of terrain, you can expect to see the endemic Bornean Bristlehead, the Scarlet Minivet, Banded Broadbill and the Red-bearded Bee-Eater. In Tabin alone, you can find 8 endemic species including the Bornean Bristlehead and Blue-banded Pitta.
Equip yourself with a good camera, binocular and a tripod, along with Sabah’s expert field guide and you are good to go. We see birds everyday, but can you distinguish one bird song to another? Take up birding and you may just be able to!
