- Checklist (Khao Yai National Park) 25 species
- Checklist (Wan-Ree resort)
The last full day in Khao Yai national park was mainly spent in two different habitats, jungle and grassland. The grassland session gave seven new species for the trip: Pied Kingfisher, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Red-rumped Swallow, Richard's Pipit, Golden-fronted Leafbird, Ashy Drongo and Dark-sided Flycatcher.
However, the bird species of the day was no less than Siberian Blue Robin. We managed to see two birds at close range during a walk in the jungle somewhere in Khao Yai. The walk was not as good as the one we did near the national park centre yesterday, but the Robin was more than enough to satisfy me. One of the birds was a male in full breeding plumage, and was giving great views when feeding on the ground near a small stream. The other bird was a duller female or 1st winter.
The afternoon was spent birding near the lodge. No new species were recorded, but immense views of both Two-barred Warbler and Taiga Flycatcher made the day complete in terms of Siberian dream birds back home in Norway.
