Here is the reason I did a 48 hour stint: Spot-breasted Laughingthrush.
Ever since I 1st saw it with Bob Sothman a couple of years back (my only time) I have dreamed of getting a picture of it since it has never been photographed in the wild and was missing in the OBI database. So when Mr Kamron told me of his find I simply 'had to go'..............I couldn't find a car to hire though in Chiang Mai since it was long weekend. I gave up the idea of going and went to Baktaley and the waders. While watching the Spoonies the phone rang and my dear wife informed me she had found a car for me. Wammo! Got the flight and off I went....and here is my hero!

Spot-breasted Laughingthrush is an extreme skulker but had been lured into view with the help of meal worms.

Now a couple month later it is still habituated and 'checking in' for some worm hand outs!
