Introductory to Birdwatching at Lake Garden with MNS 11 December 2011
Introductory to birds' briefing by Liong, a veteran birder.
We were loaned a pair of binocular with greater magnification than the pairs we owned.
Pond heron - photo captured through the lens of a telescope.
This time around, a telescope was set at kid's height.
Checking the mynah species we spotted - which was a Javan mynah.
Birding at Lake Garden was so much friendlier compare to our previous experienced at Kemensah.
We had a wonderful morning as the location chosen was more kids' friendly - with wide space to roam without disrupting the birds from afar.
We sighted Pink-necked Green Pigeon, Blue-tailed Bee-eater, Asia Glossy Starling, Asian Koel, White-throated Kingfisher, Black-naped oriole, Spotted Dove, Common Iora, Magpie and many more.
Three types of crows in Malaysia.
After an hour, the kids had enough of birding and hopped onto the huge playground.
Lots of opportunity for physical movement.
