Thailand Day 12 Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary 

21st February 2023

A stunning male Black-naped Monarch came in for a dip in a small pool in the forest we were birding

Paul Farrell was making a two day visit to Nam Nao NP and asked me yesterday if I would like to join him, staying over night in the park itself? Ideal! The timing was spot on as I was returning the scooter back, after a week of using it and I was moving out of my digs today with no idea where I was goin next. So, early hours of this morning we set off from Khon Kaen, to make it to the park just before light. Once inside, we stopped very briefly in the pick up off the side of the road until we came across some activity and birds of note included, Golden-fronted and Blue-winged Leafbird, Great and Blue-throated Barbet, Grey-chinned, Velvet-fronted Nuthatch, Scarlet, Rosy and Brown-rumped Minivet, Black-winged and Indochinese Cuckooshrike and single Great Iora and Grey-capped Woodpecker. A few new species to kick off the start of the day.

By mid-day we made our way to a hide in the forest that over looks a small pool where birds come into bath and drink. It was slow at the beginning but after an hour, different species started coming in with many being the Bulbuls. Black, ashy, Grey=eyed, Black-crested, Streaked-throated, Black and Sooty-headed Bulbul. Other birds of note were Sultin Tit, Pin-striped tit and Puff-throated Babbler, Swinhoe’s White-eye, White-rumped Shamer, Black-naped Monarch, Hainin Blue Flycatcher and a pair of Siberian Blue Robin. So good to see another male of the latter species. Throughout the day we saw lots more birds but I was ready to hit the sack and after dinner we retreated to the cabin where we were staying in the forest.

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
