Malaysia Bird List – 276 Species.

The first time I came to Malaysia birding was in May 2012, after a trip through Bali and Java, then on to Singapore and over the bridge to Johor Bahru. First stop was Mersing on the Eastern coast, then off to Pulau Tioman. Across to Melaka for the Botanical Gardens, Port Dickson, Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands, Taman Negara, Kota Bahru.
