“Travels in Borneo.”

When David and Judy Mitchell travelled to the East Indies in September, 2014, they longed to experience Borneo’s incredible flora and fauna.  At the Sepilok Jungle Resort, they visited Sun Bear, Orangutan, and Ecological Preserves, then traveled to the Bilit Adventure Lodge.  David was able to photograph the Bornean Pygmy Elephant, squirrel, and several primate including Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, and Langur.  And for birds, he photographed Hawks, Kingfishers, Sunbirds, Mynas, Hornbills, and Storks.  Beetles, butterflies, dragonflies, crocodiles and monitors all found their way into his viewfinder.  Come to the meeting on October 18th, and you'll see all these critters.  Be sure and ask David about Borneo's vampire squirrels!


Scientist David Mitchell is an excellent birder and photographer.  Co-founder of BCAS in 1981-2, David now holds the BCAS Education Chair.
