News and Information on Birding Sites Throughout Thailand and the Andaman

A three-day trip to the wilderness of Klong Saeng and Sri Phang Nga found us six species of hornbill and some fabulous specialties such as Helmeted Hornbill and Grey headed Fish Eagle.

With the heat rising and the dry season in full swing, birding has improved and many species of birds are beginning their breeding cycle. A day around Sri Phang Nga proved just that.

Watering holes in the forest are a lifesaver for hundreds of thirsty birds and animals during the dry season. Finding one is no easy task but once discovered, can be a fantastic place for spotting dozen of fantastic birds and other wildlife.

A bird photography trip to two national parks nets us two species of pitta, two species of woodpecker and plenty of other wonderful birds. -With Peter Van Velzen

We missed on getting Blue and Rusty naped Pitta at Mae Wong but found plenty of other great birds to photograph, despite the issues with the weather. -With Hans Van den Brink.

A visit to Radar Hill in Prachuap Kirikaan wasn't all I'd expected it to be, but with Pale capped Pigeon, Black Baza and a last-minute surprise to top it off, I'd have to agree that "all's well that ends well.".

A bird photography trip to Phang Nga bagged us Gould's Frogmouth, Crab Plover, Banded Pitta, Chestnut naped Forktail and more! -With Chris Galvin.
