Malaysia - Labuan


From: Charlie Dale - Postcrossing - Aerial view tag
Where: Labuan, Malaysia  
Subject: Labuan is strategically located within international shipping and air routes and lies only 1,000 kilometers to Singapore, one of the busiest seaports in the world. 
Stamp: White-rumped Shama. They are native to South and Southeast Asia, but have been introduced to Kaua'i, Hawai'i, in early 1931 from Malaysia (by Alexander Isenberger), and to O'ahu in 1940 (by the Hui Manu Society). Their popularity as a cage bird has led to many escaped birds establishing themselves. In Asia, their habitat is dense undergrowth especially in bamboo forests. In Hawaii, they are common in valley forests or on the ridges of the southern Ko'olaus, and tend to nest in undergrowth or low trees of lowland broadleaf forests.
