Birding in Sungai Buloh Wetland Reserve

Another fun day in Sungai Buloh Wetland Reserve and its never boring especially during the migratory season (end Sept - end Feb). The pictures of the Milky and Painted Stork were taken at Bird Observation Hut No 2D.

The cute thing was seeing a huge mangrove crab coming out from its muddy hideout as the Milky Stork was feeding nearby it. (probably felt threatened by the huge yellow beak probing around !)
