Children Book on Birdwatching

The Birdwatchers by Simon James. My sister "spotted" this book in the Segamat Library. What a surprise find it is:-



Lovely and wonderfully quirky illustrations at the official website of Mr Simon James, the author. I couldn't resist counting the number of birds on the cover of this book - which to me, was 11. Would be very interesting to see how many birds a child will see on the cover. Will definitely look out for this book at the upcoming Big Bad Wolf Year End Sales.

Wildlife Crossing Sign and Pied Hornbill

Was using the trunk road less traveled from Kampung Paya Pulai to Pagoh when I stumbled across this Wildlife Crossing sign below. Glad to know the Malaysian Tapir is still alive and well in our forests!
 
 Also heard and recorded the Pied Hornbill in my hometown. It was an unexpected sighting since this a Hornbill species which I'd expected to see in forests and not in a residential area.Watch YouTube video of Pied Hornbill in Segamat 2014
