This and that! Afternoon!

In the afternoon we went to the outskirts of Kaengkrachan and Lung Sin's waterhole.
On the way we spotted this Yellow-legged Buttonquail. A very difficult bird to see and there are very few images of it online. It was walking very slowly swaying back and forth as it if had been hit by something. It disappeared into the scrub after a few pictures.



Now that it is the dry season birds are starting to come to the waterholes in earnest. Scaly-breasted Partridge was one of two partridges.


             Not easy to fit the long tail of Greater Racket-tailed Drongo in the frame.


       One of two Scimitar Babbler that make use of the waterhole: White-browed!


      Here is the 2nd Partridge: Bar-backed with its wonderfully patterned plumage.



                     Racket-tailed Treepie is a fabulus looking bird when viewed near.



A mega skulker of tropical forest: Slaty-legged Crake was the ultimate bird for the afternoon.




                                    But who is to say that Red Junglefowl isn't attractive?
