For The Birds !

Recommended Posts

According to posts in Thai Bird Report (on facebook) Autumn migration is well underway with YR flycatchers already netted and ringed at Laem Phak Bia (Philip Round) and etc. So get your bins and cameras out and up those yard lists (or otherwise). 

 

My first winter visitors were a pair of Grey Wagtails in Kanchanaburi a couple weeks ago. They are among the earliest to arrive every year, apparently.

This means that we can expect a lot of great photos?

What a difference a week can make. 7 days ago, no winter visitors in my Bangsaen patch. Yesterday evening, about 30 Pacific Golden Plovers, 50+ Lesser Sand Plover, some Red Shank, Green Shank, Long Toed Stint, and Chinese Pond Heron. Winter visitors all.

Interesting. I also saw a very large amount of Black-crowned Night Heron yesterday, almost all juveniles. Resident here so I see them throughout the year, but yesterday more than I had ever seen in one day. As for snipe, Pintail from Common for me was always made by call and the way they flushed.

Was out for a bit of fishing this morning and saw a single Grey wagtail feeding along a fast flowing stream.  Also a flock of about 10 Bee-eaters flew past overhead but couldn't  positively identify. My guess is Chestnut-headed Bee-eater as none had the central tail prong.  But still no sign of Black Drongoes nor Brown Shrike.
