Chong Yen, Mae Wong, Kumpangpet

 This place is easily one of my favorite birding spots. A lot of nice birds from both the North and Central region and often there are interesting mixed flocks of song birds.

Another feature of late are the permanent hides by water holes. Here one has a good chance of seeing and photographing cryptic skulking birds of the forest.

Here is the Streaked Wren Babbler.


Buff-breasted Babbler was a photographic lifer for me. An easily overlooked bird as it also is a real skulker.





Eye-browed Wren Babbler is a tiny bird seldom seen but also readily came in to the meal worms. 


Rufous-browed Flycatcher has a soft musical song but loves it in the shade of the dark forest so seeing it like this was a treat.

A nice collection you have there. The hides do what a great difference for these often difficult birds.
