While trying to find the Oriental Pied Hornbill that i heard via its call, i sighted a huge bee nest. I was told later it was the nest of Giant honeybee (Apis dorsata). The sighting of bee nest to me is not something to be feared but rather a good sign that the woodlands in Ubin are healthy and pollination is facilitated by this bees.
Other birds that i managed to catch sight of other than the Oriental Pied Hornbills are a pair of Lesser Flameback woodpeckers on a coconut tree and finally what i think is a Juvenile Magpie Robin.
