Owls And Other Birds - Sighted In C.Rai Area?

Recommended Posts

Thanks hmj, for the insight and url link. I'm as intrigued by bird sounds as I am by their appearance and behavior. Sounds like were reading from the same song bird page.

Not sure what this is - either a male Short billed Minivet (Pericrocotus brevirostris) or a Scarlet minivet (Pericrocotus flammeus)

Philip Round in "A Guide to the birds of Thailand" writes the following on the
Scarlet Minivet: "Stouter and proportionately shorter-tailed than other minivets".

The minivet shown is heavy build and the tail is short compared to the body length.

The Short-billed Minivet has a limited distribution to hill evergreen forest above
1000 m a.s.l. The only provinces with extensive areas of these conditions are Pai,
Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai.

Chiang Rai province has evergreen hill forest on the mountain between amphur
Chiang Saen and amphur Chiang Khong with only a small area over 1,000 m a.s.l.

Photo was taken near Khum Korn Waterfall - not far from Doi Chang. Area still some rather thick vegetation.
