Birding during Maal Hijrah 1435H Holiday

It rained last night, the road is all wet and muddy, so no road-bike training this morning. Went to my usual  spot for 2 hours birding at Padang Golf Raub. No new species, all the normal residence.

Can you spot any bird here?


"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
Surah Al-Mulk (67:19)
