Part 2

We spent a few days in wooded areas of Kaengkrachan and Khao Yai. We did not see any Pittas of Broadbills but many other nice forest dwelling birds. 

Orange-headed Trogon

                                            Bar-backed Partridge

                                             White-browed Scimitar Babbler

           While en route to Khao Yai we saw a resident form of Black Baza over open fields.

Khao Yai is the place you need to visit for Siamese Firebacks and they did deliver as they fed on fallen blossoms.

Silver Pheasent is a lot harder to find but the early morning gave us views of 9 birds in two groups.

The Barred Cuckoo Dove is ridiculously shy so it was a surprise that this one would post long enough for fairly close views.

                                                       Hainan Blue Flycatcher

                                               Siberian Blue Robin

                                     Ever so attractive: Orange-headed Thrush

                            And our annual little friend Mugimaki Flycatcher showed well.
