day 5 kinabatangan

The last morning boat ride along the Kinabatangan River in Eastern Sabah. We saw a variety of monkeys and a few birds.

White-crowned Hornbill (Berencornis comatus)

This is the fifth hornbill that I have seen in this area. That makes six in Sabah.

Sometimes there are torrential downpours. It is the wet season.
