Air Hitam Dam – Penang

I had hired a motorbike for a couple of days. So this morning I took off to Air Hitam Dam, up in the hills above Georgetown in Penang. A very nice bit of bush but very few birds. 🙁

Chestnut-breasted Malkoha

I had a few bonus photos left over from the backyard of my hostel at Teluk Bahang. And here they are, better late than never.
