Seeing the White-fronted Scops Owl February 2007

  • In February 2007 I made a number of visits to the only 2 sites worldwide where it is possible to see the White-fronted Scops Owl.  With this report I want to share my knowledge about finding this rare bird....Suthin Niraphai reports

Southern Central Thailand - Kaeng Krachan NP 19th - 21st June 2006

  • I made a three day visit to the Kaeng Krachan national park from my temporary base in Hua Hin. This was part of a recent series of short visits to birding areas whilst in Thailand on a generally non-birding holiday....Dominic Le Croissette reports.

Lampakbia and Kaengkrachan 5-10/03/06

  • I had finally connected with a Red-billed Scimitar-Babbler mixed in with a flock of White-hooded Babblers at Nam Nao. And hadn’t it been for the clutch on the van breaking down I also wouldn’t have been able to photograph the White-bellied Woodpecker and enjoy the immense tranquility of the night at Nam Nao National Park...Peter Ericsson reports.

Kaengkrachan 3-4/02/2

  • So easy to spot birds up here and at the same time take in the breathtaking views of rolling mountain peaks, covered in green mass. Good birds here were: Grey Treepie, Great Hornbill, White-browed Shrike-Babbler, Blue-throated Barbet, Vernal Hanging Parakeet, Himalayan Swiftlet......Peter Ericsson reports

Kaengkrachan National Park April 10-12, 1999

  • This park has always been a desire of mine to visit. Time away from fulltime Christian volunteer work doesn't come about easy, but as the Bible says: "Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart!" Psalms 34:4. This has now been fulfilled in a three day camping trip accompanied by 8 children, ages 7-15...Peter Ericsson reports

  • A new flexi-cover edition of this superb and influential book is now available (UK) making it far more useful in the field. The birds of South-East Asia details the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of the 1250 species and distinctive sub-species of the region covering Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, West Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. The illustrations are excellent and Craig Robson's text reflects his position as one of the foremost ornithological authorities of S.E.Asia. Indispensable for anyone visiting the area.

Recommended travel books for Thailand:

Lonely Planet: Thailand
Joe Cummings, Steven Martin: Buy from or
  • Many backpackers refer to the various Lonely Planet guides as South East Asia bibles, and indeed treat them as such. Taking just a glimpse at Lonely Planet: Thailand, it's not difficult to understand why. Crammed into over 1000 pages is everything you could want to know about pretty much every region of Thailand.
Lonely Planet: Thailand's Islands and Beaches
Joe Cummings: Buy from or
  • One of the main reasons people visit Thailand is for the scenery and amazing wildlife concentrated along its beautiful coast line--from the hippy resort of Had Rin and the sea Gypsy fishing villages around Koh Surin to the beautiful coral and waterfalls scattered around its coast. It gives you what you need to know about the main destinations. There is a whole section on Thailand's marine environment including beautiful colour photos. However, it also includes good information on Bangkok where many people either begin or end their journeys.
