Malaysian Birds

 

For those into birding, numbers are important to one's hobby. For Malaysian birds, the magic number is 778, as worked out by Bird Life International, the authoritative body on this topic.

I am no different. The time I was touching the "400" mark, I found that progress in the form of getting lifers was extremely tedious and uncertain.

Clicking on the name of individual bird will show that one particular bird. The "Type of bird" - Next, the larger text in green will lead you to a new page showing more pictures of birds within that family.

Withi this list - beside birds pictures there are also videos that I have posted on You Tube.

This same list is duplicated and presented according the habitats these bird should be found. Visit also the page "Family of Birds"
