Last Day on Doi Lang

Great views of many birds at the feeding stations on Doi Lang today and we spent quite some time enjoying this amazing spectacle. I've put a few assorted photos below of some of my best shots from the day.

Hill Prinia

Himalayan Bluetail

We saw 3 different Siberian Rubythroats today

Slaty-blue Flycatcher

White-browed Scimitar-Babbler

Spot-breasted Parrotbill

General birding today was also rather productive and amongst a lot of new trip birds were Slender-billed Oriole, Indochinese Cuckooshrike, Chestnut Bunting, Blyth's Shrike-Babbler, Hume's Treecreeper, Sapphire Flycatcher, Chinese Leaf-Warbler, Rufous-backed Sibia and Golden-throated Barbet. Best of all were the two male Mrs Hume's Pheasants feeding alongside the road on the way up the mountain at first light. It was a good, fun day although there were inevitably slower periods during the heat of the day and it was good to get back to the hotel a little earlier and have a nice cold beer!
