As usual I have neglected to post on my blog. It seems that Facebook takes priority these days along with my pbase account. Anyhow, here is a little something.
The master of the tree tops: Gibbons.....these are incredible strong animals well adapted for a life in tree tops. They also live of plants and fruit.....amazing, isn't it?
On the forest floor. A Ferruginous Partridge is carefully viewing the road before crossing the road. Just too bad I didn't manage to focus correctly.
Male Banded Kingfisher with prey for its young. Simply gorgeous looking bird!
The only place in Thailand to see Ratchet-tailed Treepie and with a tail like that it makes it a rather special bird. Unlike other treepies this one prefers it inside the thick forest.
The Rufous-browed Flycatcher has its strong hold near to Panern Thung. The birds like it low inside the dark forest gullies. I managed to lure this one out in the open.
The song of Golden Babbler is always present. Very curious little bird!
I hadn't had good views of Great Slaty Woodpeckers for awhile so it was nice to connect well with a family group working a tree near the 3rd stream.
Heart-spotted Woodpecker showed well at stream 2.
No posting from Kaengkrachan would be complete without an image of a Broadbill. This pair of Black-red Broadbills were building a nest at Bahn Krahng camp.
