Here is a video of a Crested Serpent Eagle at Kuala Selangor, Malaysia, taken on 3rd December 2022, during a birdwatching outing with the Wild Bird Club of Malaysia (WBCM).
Though I have seen this raptor numerous times, it is the first time I got a close-up video of it perched on a swaying mangrove tree. The location of this is also at the Kuala Selangor Nature Park here.
Crested Serpent Eagle at Kuala Selangor Video
The video above is just a short video to give you an idea of what the bird looks like. It is not made for academics, as it is just a quick video showing the eagle perched on a branch at the Kuala Selangor Nature Park.
The Crested Serpent Eagle is commonly spotted here, usually soaring above the skies and sometimes perched on the mangrove trees. Depending on your luck and the time you visit, you may encounter the eagle at a close distance for bird photography.
You can also browse my website for more birds of Malaysia and other information, as I have added many birdwatching information on Malaysia. I even have some coverage for birdwatching in Sarawak, and Sabah included.
I also have information on some birdwatching accommodations at popular locations around Malaysia, and more will be added along the way.
Conclusion to the Crested Serpent Eagle at Kuala Selangor Malaysia
I have seen this raptor several times when I visit the Kuala Selangor Nature Park or KSNP and often in the morning to late morning. I also recommend going there at about 7.00 AM to spot them as there have been sightings of up to three raptors in the area.
There is an entry fee into the KSNP, and when you go early, there is no staff there, but you can proceed in first, and when you exit the park, you can pay at the ticket counter, which opens around 8.00 AM.
