Thailand: Doi Ang Khang

Although we only pay a short visit to the rugged mountains of Doi Ang Khang, it still produces a number of quality birds. It's rather unfortunate that some migrant workers had plonked their tents on the feeding station where the Rusty-naped Pitta used to show, but that was over a month ago and they've relocated a little distance away - the workers not the pitta! But we still enjoyed nice looks at Streaked Wren Babbler and others.

Another feeding station produced great views of 6 Black-breasted Thrushes, 2 Eye-browed Thrushes, female Chestnut-bellied Rock-Thrush and a Grey-sided Thrush.

Here's a couple of Black-breasted Thrushes

Cook's Swifts are extremely numerous

Giant Nuthatch showed well

I'm assuming this is the 'usual' Eastern Buzzard we get in northern Thailand, although with various claims of Long-legged and Himalayan Buzzards recently....
