Birds of a feather may not flock together - Malaysian birds and their families

There could be satisfaction in knowing more about the commonly seen birds.

 Isn't that reverting to the prime objective of bird watchers? Learn more about birds that we know and in the same time accumulating more pictures of them. Swab numbers of lifers that I was hoping to get with more pictures of birds of the "same old" birds.

That's is the background for the starting of this page. Now I am busy and happy with the progress, with clear mind putting more efforts in chasing for more pictures.

In the latest update I have rearranged the position of the forest birds according to their approximate sizes. This style is controversial but I hope I could help those new to Malaysian birds to get  quick grasp on their names. After all there is already one page linking the birds up according to alphabetical orders. Starting with the larger birds on top getting down to the smallest forest birds.

All that you see and read in these pages are the result of the effort shown by a single person - me. No proof reading and long delayed correction. I learned that it is a lonely world with few people around me interested and could relief me in handling some chores. Not grumbling about my solitary state but on the contrary, I am out show most critics that bird watching and now recording of birds seen could be pursued by  a person, alone. Forget the impression that the hobby would generate best satisfaction as a team effort. I would love team work and fellowship. But that privilege is not bestowed on everyone. Better not wait for that day where I could join or joined by like-minded person. As it is, I could proceed through fumbling into getting to where I wanted.

It is not surprising to find wrong insertions and typing errors and most of all poor English in many pages. Please excuse my carelessness.
