I made a short overnight trip to Kuala Selangor on 28 March 2021 for family time. Had the opportunity to track the Kuala Selangor Nature Park with my wife & son. At the beginning of the trekking, I came across this Oriental white-eye feeding on the flowering tree. The bird was just about 25ft away then.
