Bird Festival in Sepilok, Sabah, East Malaysia

Bird trails in Sepilok.

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.

If I've aroused you interest, go to http://www.borneobirdfestival.com

Happy birding!


  1. You are going places Roger. And with your blog too. Congratulations.

    Love the orang utans. Ang mohs call them, "Rang-nger-tengs".

  2. What is the literal meaning of "rang nger tengs?", Andy?

  3. Literal meaning = man of the jungle. Thought you have a picture below your Daily Stats Countdown on the right?
