EXPECTED OF THE UNEXPECTED BRUNEI BIRD it has been a really good
evening for the past several days. Last night at 2am I was woken up by
the call of the Collared Scops Owl also known as Sunday Scops Owl.
Take me almost 40 minutes to search for him on the durian canopy. Even I
have spotted it still struggling to photograph the owl. It is almost
impossible to search for him on the canopy especially when it stops
I was bitten by fire ants to photograph the Collared Scop Owl. The only good place to have a good view of the owl was right
on the fire ants nest. I photograph the owl quickly before more ants
climb all over me.
BE EXPECTED OF THE UNEXPECTED BRUNEI FOREST BIRD another satisfying
bird photographer who travels all the way from Sweden just to photograph
the Large Frogmouth in Brunei rainforest.
We start searching
for the large frogmouth at 10:00pm in the forest. After several hours’
disappointments search for the bird we finally able to photograph this
amazing Large Frogmouth we almost eye level.
As a bird guide, I feel so relieved to spot the frogmouth and happy with joy to watch both the bird and the guest.
Well, I did not express it out but in my heart, oh no! Not in front of the guest who was photographing the bird.
I always happy when never my guests see what they wanted, although they know - Nature cannot promise.
He takes lots of photographs since the frogmouth stays for two hours
twenty-five minutes. Believe it he even manages to take 3-minutes break
before taking more photos.
In the end, we both cry out “WOW we
did it!” worth of the search he said although I almost think that you
were bluffing Jungle Dave. I don’t think there is a frogmouth in this
forest but you prove me wrong. THANK YOU!
