Back in Thailand....

As there are numerous Thailand posts from the past few years I thought that this time i'd do a summary of events as we go along and put a few decent photos here, just to give you a flavour of what birding in Thailand is all about. As you know, we do quite a few Thai tours each year and i really love the birding here.

So today was our first day here in the north and we have reached the forested slopes of Doi Ang Khang where we went straight to one of the feeding stations and totally nailed Rusty-naped Pitta. I mean NAILED IT!! Point-blank views down to 4 metres of this male feeding right out in the open, and a female skulking in the shadows behind.

There was also a flock of Silver-eared Mesias, Black-breasted ThrushWhite-tailed Robin, Hill Blue Flycatcher and Large Niltava at the same spot. So not a bad start right...?
