Leaving Emei Feng...

Our final morning on Emei Feng was spent with clear blue skies and sunshine, which was something of a surprise after a stormy night. 

Emei Feng in the sunshine for a change....

We followed the Tragopan Trail again and had a brief sighting of a male Cabot’s Tragopan flying out of a tree, as well as a female with 4 chicks walking up a wooded slope. After breakfast we birded our way down the mountain and I was particularly pleased to finally get Kloss’s Leaf-Warbler performing extremely well and singing from several exposed perches right next to us.

In fact the song was incredibly varied and it seemed to mimic some random 'phllosc' songs that i tried playing... Mmmm   

Mountain Bulbul was quite common here.....

There was also two Collared Owlets at separate locations that pulled in Blyth’s Shrike-Babblers, Indochinese and Black-chinned Yuhinas, Yellow-cheeked Tits and Mountain Bulbuls amongst other species. 

Collared Owlets - spot the difference....

In glorious weather we enjoyed views of many previously seen species, with Crested Serpent-Eagle, Greater Necklaced Laughingthrush and Sulphur-breasted Warbler being new for the tour.

Lunch was taken in Taining before we set off on the 5 hour drive towards the next birding hotspot of the Minjiang Estuary.
