While leafing through a trip report on http://, I came across a link to a forthcoming guide from Princeton University Press that may be of interest to birders visiting SE Asia:

Birds of Borneo: Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak, and Kalimantan
Susan Myers
ISBN13: 978-0-691-14350-7

Paper | October 2009 | $29.95
272 pp. | 6 x 8 1/2 | 1,592 color illus. 630 maps.

"This is the first comprehensive field guide to illustrate and describe the varied bird species of Borneo, an ecologically significant island comprising Brunei, the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, and the Indonesian provinces of Kalimantan. With close to 1,600 beautiful color illustrations and 630 color distribution maps, this up-to-date guide identifies and details more than 620 bird species by key characteristics and habitat information. It also includes all recently split species, and provides full coverage of the Bornean endemics and distinctive races when they differ from their counterparts on neighboring islands or in mainland Southeast Asia."

"Susan Myers is an experienced birder and naturalist based in Melbourne, Australia. She has led tours throughout Asia for Victor Emanuel Nature Tours for more than fifteen years."
