Nightlife!

I went to Kaengkrachan with my son Jaime and a friend from Sweden: Bengt Legnell.
We mainly wanted to target owls. We heard 8 different species in the evening: Barred Eagle Owl, Brown Hawk Owl, Asian Barred Owlet, Collared Scops Owl, White-fronted Scops Owl, Oriental Bay Owl, Collared Owlet and Mountain Scops Owl.......the WFS was our main target and we were very close to it but failed to see it. It called for hours but wouldn't show.

However, a Javan Frogmouth was a much overdue lifer for me. So happy to finally see one.




Blue Pitta showed well on a trail and then in the late afternoon a Leopard gave views on the road. I have seen the black version before but this was my 1st time with the spotted one.
