Managed to get a BIF of a White-throated Kingfisher-hope you like it        

Talking of colourful but common birds, I managed to get this photo about right of a White-throated Kingfisher. Rarely seen near water, happy hunting in fields etc.

Obviously not in my garden, but in Kaeng Krachana NP last week. Also saw a lot of Grey Wagtails which are among the earliest of the winter visitors reminding me that it's time to keep my eyes open in

Been awhile since anything out of the ordinary at my yard. This morning I found this foraging on my kafir lime tree and later at the long bean trellis. Looks like a young bird but what is it? Size about 2/3 to 3/4 of the streak eared bulbul. The hint of a mustachial stripe and dark ear coverts have me baffled.

I want to say sub-adult Plain Prinia but the facial markings make that hard There are three or four facebook sited for bird IDs not where you would get your answer in minutes. For this one I old try "LBJ Lovers Thailand."

This is PURELY for fun. 😀

 

Just when we think we've got these little buggers figured out...

 

...Pipit on a wire! 

 

Pretty much a daily occurrence here. They come in and land on the ground and when they depart...up to the wire for a look-see, or visa versa.

I said "not often" not "never." Nearly all ground feeders will take to a tree or wire occasionally, especially when encountering the most dangerous species of all, homo sapiens. But the comment was in regards to what you'd ID's as a probably pipit but was one of the _larks, which are often perched on wires.

Large Hawk-Cuckoo is my best here. Tail seems just a bit short, but everything else matches. 

Yes it all matches. Another great call...Thx. Brings the new patch list to 58.

Thanks AN. I got a response from Facebook and it's a moulting Thick-billed warbler confirmed by tapping sounds heard yesterday. I replayed the calls from xeno canto and the bird reappeared briefly.

You may remember that I've had Yellow-vented Bulbuls nesting and rearing chicks in my cycling helmet hanging from the handlebars right outside my front door on three occasions in recent years, always about this time of the year. Went to have a look at the nest in the helmet yesterday (they use the same nest and work on it before laying eggs) and was gutted to find that the nest has been raided for its materials and dismantled - its almost gone - it was in tact last time I looked a fortnight back. Have to assume its the same pair of Yellow-vented Bulbuls, and maybe as they have not been successful rearing they have decided to move the nest location. Hope to see where they have moved to. Gutted!
