During October there is a massive migration of Amur Falcons from parts of China/Russia all the way to Africa. Some of these birds we in recent years have learned to pass over Northern Thailand.
As I started to scale the steep road up to Doi Angkhang from Fang my eyes fell on this beauty. There were 2 birds around and though not perched on a tree they still gave clear shots. What an attractive Falcon this is!
This bird I spotted while driving along the ridge
on Doi Lang. It took the help of some friends to verify that it actually was a Eurasian Hobby, a bird I had not seen in Thailand before!
