Sabah Birding.

I was at Poring Hot Springs for two days and did not see many birds. The place was super packed out with Malaysian tourists, but. I went for a walk along the edges of the park, following the river to the camping area.

I came across this weird worm looking thing with a hammer head. So I named it the Hammer-headed Worm.

This Common Sandpiper was lurking around on top of a bridge covered in muddy water. I have no idea what he was feeding on.
