By Hum Kim Choy.
Winged Wonders: Malaysian Heritage is the companion and sequel to Winged Wonders in Malaysia. It represents the culmination of the last decade of bird watching and bird photography. All of the colour photographs and the over-90 bird species featured in this book are new and not recycled, lovingly captured in their natural habitats – lowlands; mudflats and mangroves; ricefields; freshwater wetlands; scrublands; lowland, small hill and highland forests.
The authors have tried to showcase the spectacular beauty and remarkable drama of the country’s resident and migratory birds from the common to the rare ones.
As with their previous book, the authors hope that Winged Wonders: Malaysian Heritage will:
- strengthen public awareness and appreciation for the diverse wealth and vast array of Malaysia’s avifaunal legacy;
- emphasise the need to protect the unique and distinct habitats that are critical to the survival of birds
- motivate more people to preserve their national treasures
