Bird Festival in Sepilok, Sabah, East Malaysia
The first-ever International Bird Race in Sepilok is now on till the 15th of this month. I saw these trails for birding enthusiasts. Nothing could be easier I thought so gingerly walking on the muddy and slippery trails I tried to test my birding ability.
Number of birds spotted: 0
There are about 300 species of birds in Sepilok alone, and I couldn't even spot one! Must see an eye specialist soon.
In a birding contest, participants try to spot as many birds as possible within a time frame. Here in Sepilok it's 24 hours.
