The 1st shock upon the arrival, was the massive human intrusion in an area beside the river at the entrance. I have not been visiting the Ampang Recreation Forest Park for some months now. It is managed by the Forestry Dept, taking over from the Ministry Of Tourism.
The surprise scene that I received after seeing the fruiting tree in Rimba, that's my barometer as to when I should be in Ampang. Those are trees from the same species, it is a matter of -are the fruits ripening at the same rate.
Yet another pleasant surprise, it was one type of tree fruiting, there was more. The pictures here shows. This one favoured by Red-eyed Bulbuls, Flowerpeckers, Starlings and Mynas
And flowers, could not tell what this female Minivet was picking off among the Saraccas
Look at this female Red Jungle fowl again, certainly look quite different from our standard domestic mother hen. The robust grey legs. This one is close to the original blood line and suffered little cross breeding
This is the time to top up my archive of Red-eyed. They were very tame though may not stand still to have their picture taken. Good for macro practise.
This female lured me to follow her for pictures. The male was also with her but I manage many shots of half the bird.
