One last time up onto the slopes of Doi Inthanon and what a great result to start the day as we scoped a cracking Asian Emerald Cuckoo as it sat calling from the top of a sunlit tree. Wow! And eventually we also found our other target bird, when a small group of Black-throated Parrotbills passed close by in company with some Golden Babblers.
Apart from that, we saw a close male Clicking Shrike-Babbler, Grey-throated Babbler, some close Silver-eared Mesias, Rufous-backed Sibia, and other previously seen species.
Then we headed off to Chiang Mai airport for our afternoon flight to Bangkok. Upon arrival we checked in to the Amari Don Muang Hotel and then had a nice little birding session nearby with Red-rumped Swallow, Germain’s Swiftlet, Yellow-vented Bulbul and best of all, a few Java Sparrows.
