Asia Bird Watching

Welcome to Bird Watching Asia, a specialized portal, website and blog about all things bird watching in Asia. The main objective of this bird watching website is to provide birders with up to date information on bird watching in this region.

You will find articles, reviews, locations, resources, and even tips and tricks about bird watching from this region. More focus will be put into Southeast Asia as Greater Asia is a very wide area, but we will include relevant destinations as well.

Who is Bird Watching Asia? 

Bird Watching Asia is an independent and private website and blog that is owned and operated by MyAsia Services from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We are not a bird tour company or bird watching guides, but just general birders who have been bird watching since 2008, and do not claim to be professionals. We tend to do this on a leisure pace as one of our hobbies.

However, over the years, much of my bird watching has been done mainly around Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo Malaysia, Indonesia and Jordan.

One thing I realized was that there is limited information about this unique hobby, therefore I took the initiative to start this bird watching website to provide valuable information on this.
