I am currently in northern Thailand for a 3-week vacation. This trip is mainly a family trip, but I will get in a bit of photography from time to time. Already I have good photos of Green Bee-eater, as well as a few birds I have yet to confirm the ID of. From Aug 6 to Aug 8 I will be at Doi Angkhan, where I will hopefully be able to photograph some rare birds like Mrs Hume’s Pheasant and Giant Nuthatch – we’ll see how it goes! ;) I am also hoping for a day trip to Doi Inthanon…

Bird highlights included Green-tailed Sunbird, Purple Sunbird, Rufous-winged Buzzard, Chinese Egret, Malaysian Plover, Little Cormorant, White-browed Shortwing, Green Bee-eater, Streaked Wren Babbler, Rufous-winged Fulvetta, Brown-cheeked Fulvetta, Chestnut-crowned Laughing Thrush, Blue Whistling Thrush, Yellow-cheeked Tit, Purple Cochoa, White-bellied Sea Eagle, etc. Other wildlife included White-handed Gibbon, Red-bellied Mountain Squirrel, Himalayan Striped Squirrel, Water Monitor, Tockay Gecko, Yellow-headed Temple Turtle and Elongated Tortoise. I will be posting photos from this trip over the next few days.
