Tanjung Rhu Birds

Durian Perangin Waterfall

This morning I went to the Waterfall near the Kilim Karst tourist complex. There was nothing about but I found a few birds on the way out along the road. After that I went to Tanjung Rhu to have a look and found a few birds in the sawah near town. Happy Birthday to me!

Tern
White-winged Tern (Chlidonias leucopterus)

Thanks for Tou Jing Yi and Dave Bakewell for help in identifying this one and the Whiskered Tern. It seems there was a White-winged Tern and a Whiskered Tern hunting together in the same rice field. Weird. I never expected that.
