 Malaysian Birds

  Birds photos, videos, bird calls & information on Malaysian birds


I am no graphic experts, but just an ordinary guy who is interested in making bird pictures. Like wise I am not into the studying of birds, but I simply love watching them again and again, learning more about their living habits. In so doing got drag into seeking out the less common species but not the rare species. I admit that the quality of my pictures posted here are not exceptional, I am trying to pass on the my experiences on what I have seen and hoping to help those who are curious about birds and love watching them share these information. For example:- Help to identify the "strange" birds they just saw. Following my own style of learning, I thought I could help by showing many pictures of the same bird, seen under different environment and also showing those within the same family.

In the table below,  a  quick reference to individual bird. The A-Z birds page has listed bird under the heading of the family Common name. Here, the bird e.g. "Fire-tufted Barbet" would appear as one large frame picture complete with calls and videos. So the names in alphabetical order

Then by Family - on this index page, I am considering visitors who are not so conversant with the names of local birds. In this section, the birds pictures will be organized according to their habitats i.e. Forest birds, ground birds or aerial birds. Then for forest birds in particular, the indicative bird pictures are again listed by their average size. larger birds on top moving down to the tiny birds.

Under the links to "video" I can only point you to my own link in You Tube. The videos for the individual birds need to be keyed in for searching. Finally under the page on calls, I have posted the calls of birds commonly heard. Those calls of the more exotic birds and those from the tiny birds from the bush are omitted from the list. I have my reasons and also curtailing the length of the page to make it easier to view. Those calls though not indicated, could be heard on the links attached to that bird under the page on Family of Birds.


 A - Z list - Yes, individual birds pictures of Malaysian Birds - arranged for easy search. Here are pictures, Video clips and bird calls of individual birds


Family Album by groups - Malaysian Birds search page reorganized according to their habitats. This is a voluminous section in which I have completed the  compilation of 65 families of birds with over 3,000 pictures in 800x600 size

Birds Calls frequently heard in Malaysian parks, gardens and forest edges





This page on Malaysian Birds was started by me on 28th October 2003 supported by a free web page provided by  Geocities. As time passes Geocities changed hands and the new owner then decided to charge while the free websites facility withdrawn. I retained my site and continued with them on  a paid basis. Then came one more round of take over and this time, Yahoo decided that the annual rentals be increased. I left them and found a better partner. I

In 2011, this bird site under the new URL Malaysian Bird was started and took over the old contents. As time progresses having transferred the old materials over, I started to give the many pages a new look. That effort was not sustained and interrupted. I got myself working as an actor in end 2011. One thing led to another, by the time the movie was completed I went on to finish a book on "The Story Of My Life". After 3 revisions the book was published in July 2014.

Here in the last quarter of 2014, I am back to tidying up the big mess that I once launched. First trimming down and deleting many unneeded images and duplications. The total number of images to date is brought down to below the 10,000 pictures.  Bird List for many locations and stories on nesting birds, all these were taken off.


Translating my efforts into websites all by myself, lots of areas needed correction. I seek your assistance- tell me about discrepancies and irregularities
