Brunei 10th-16th June 2011

  • Overall, it was an interesting, safe and friendly place with a very laid back attitude though the birding was often frustrating with lots of things calling but frequently only being glimpsed briefly....Nigel Milius & Wendy Hare report.

Birding Brunei December 2010 and January 2011

  • Brunei is generally disregarded as a birding destination, due to neighbouring Sabah and Sarawak having most of the Bornean endemics such as Fruithunter and the Kinabulu specialities. However, Brunei has its own charm.....It is an ideal family/birding destination. It also has a very large proportion of its rainforest left, unlike the rest of Borneo, so eco-tourists can probably do a great deal to ensure it remains so...George Watola reports.

Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


Birds of Borneo: Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak, and Kalimantan (Princeton Field Guides)
Susan Myers: Buy from or

  • For at least a decade, this region has desperately needed a new field guide, and this one does Susan Myers and the region proud....The first full field guide to cover the astonishing, ecologically important island of Borneo. With nearly 1,600 color illustrations covering over 630 species, this is the perfect all-inclusive field guide for birders wishing to visit this birding paradise.

A Field Guide to the Birds of Borneo, Sumatra, Java, and Bali
John MacKinnon: Buy from or

  • This book provides a complete identification guide to the birds of this important region, including descriptions and colour illustrations of all 820 species found there, many of which do not occur anywhere else. Information is provided on where to look for endemic and insular forms and on major birding localities. Introductory chapters discuss habitats, climate, land-use, and conservation. This volume is intended for reference and for pleasure, for amateur and professional ornithologists, for birdwatchers and for tourists to Indonesia and region.

A Photographic guide to the birds of SE Asia
Morten Strange: Buy from or

  • This guide covers almost 700 species found in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, the Philippines and Borneo. Each species is illustrated with a photograph and distribution map, making this a quick-reference guide in a pocketable format. Many of the photos are new and invariably of good quality.

A Field Guide to the Birds of West Malaysia and Singapore
Allen Jeyarajasingam, Alan Pearson: Buy from or

  • Another classic field guide in what is fast becoming the most complete series currently on offer. The high standard of text and illustrations that we have come to expect of Oxford University Press is maintained, along with a wealth of information about the area, one which is often visited by birdwatchers but until now has not been covered by a decent field guide. Its small, portable nature and quick easy use make this a great book for the field or the home library.

A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia
Craig Robson: Buy from or

  • A new flexi-cover edition of this superb and influential book is now available (UK) making it much more useful as a field guide. The birds of South-East Asia details the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of the 1250 species and distinctive sub-species of the region covering Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, West Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. The illustrations are excellent and Craig Robson's text reflects his position as one of the foremost ornithological authorities of S.E.Asia. Indispensable for anyone visiting the area.

Where to watch birds in Asia
Wheatley, Nigel: Buy from or

  • This guide to birdwatching in Asia deals with over 250 sites in detail, and more in passing, from Turkey to Thailand and India to Indonesia. It is designed as much for pre-planning birding trips as for use in the country or countries on the itinerary. The countries are dealt with alphabetically and after a general introduction, there are site details, which include a list of birds to be seen, organized under the headings "Endemics", "Specialities" and "Others"; a list of "Other Wildlife" is also included where there is something of particular interest.
