    Thanks James. Do you know if the recording (the only one!) of presumed Blue WT at Fraser's is really Blue and not Malayan? presumed Blue (sounds like Malayan to me):https://www.xeno-canto.org/143279 'typical' Malayan: https://www.xeno-canto.org/175839 I would think Malayan is always higher...

    Hi Andy, for sure it's no direct evidence, but Han's recording was taken at a known stake-out at that time, and even though I don't know him personally, I consider his sightings to be reliable (he is not on my black list, if I would have one ;-) and I hope I am not on other's black lists :-) ...

    It his list indeed ;) But as said, we heard the bird (we were playing tape before so were very focused on hearing a response), and the response was exactly the same sound. So IF (I say if!) the sound recording is OK, and IF the sound is different from Blue Whistling Thrush, we 100% heard the...

    Hi Andy, some answers on your remarks: Blue-winged Minla: we didn't see it. the beer at TN: there is one other place but uphill from the river restaurants, somewhere near the Teresek View Motel (on the google map). At Fraser's, the beer was far from a given, as the restaurant next to Scott's...

    FYI, my attempts birding Fraser's Hill, Taman Negara and Bukit Tingi for the Peacock-pheasant are officially online: http://users.ugent.be/~hmatheve/hm/MALAYSIA18.html The most important part of the report is the where-to-buy beer section, cause anyone birding there will need it to rehydrate...

    A quick update: we did well with rusty-naped Pitta, marbled-wren babbler, malayan whistling thrush, partridges, bamboo woodpecker and the more common stuff. No snif of cutia and long billed partridge but we only tried the pine trail in the afternoon. It feels like many skulking birds are...

    How far do the boardwalks go from the visitor centre: 1 kilometer? 2? or even more? Reading into Paul's experience, either the main entrance is a bit disappointing with visitors / boardwalk / ... or maybe it's still as good as ever once you go further away from the visitor centre? I'll be...

    I feel the beer advise is the only practical advise that I am going to follow with 100% succes, seems like the birding is extremely hard! Have been birding in Danum before so I can imagine how it's going to be like :-)
