Borneo Bird Festival 2010

Its a relief when the event is ended.The festival was much better this year, more people came to the festival and participate in many programs. The  bird race was having more participant than last year. The weather was been pretty good. Rain came on the launching day just to cool down the temperature but the rest of the event was being in a good weather. 

The talk was pretty interesting, we got Dr Pilai Poonswad from Thailand who talk about Hornbill of the world and it was fascinating and interesting seeing how they do the conservation work for hornbill. Dennis Salvador from Philippines talks about "Monkey Eating Eagle". There more other speakers did an interesting talks.

Anyway here are some photos for share in here.
