Bazas



Jerdon's Baza is not a very common bird and certainly not perched as was the case while
driving out from Kaengkrachan midday early November this year.

Black Baza is the other Baza found in Thailand and serves as real eye-candy.





Falcons

 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!
