Nakorn Nayok, part 2

This colorful bird is quite common in a variety of open habitats. It is never easy to approach as it will fly off while flashing its blue wings glistering in the sunlight. This bird was obliging. Probably a young bird. Young birds seem to be like humans, not fully aware of the dangers in the world around them.

Another very common bird in the grasslands is the Red-wattled Lapwing. When alarmed it takes to its wings while uttering its loud song: 'dtae wae wet'
