Ancient Birds of Angkor: Birding in Cambodia

Recently I had an email asking me if I noticed many representations of birds around the temples of Angkor during my visit there last March while leading the Zootherabirding tour to Cambodia. A photo I posted previously on this blog of Sarus Cranes РBirding Around Angkor Wat Р on a bas-relief on the Bayon [...]


North & Central Thailand Tour, February 2016 – Thailand Birding

For the last seventeen days I have been in the company of Nick Bray of Zootherabirding, on the 2016 Northern and Central Thailand birding tour.

Unhappily I failed to get even a sniff of any of these birds [...]


Butterflies at Kaeng Krachan

At certain times of the year, during the wet season for example, it is worth staying out on the trails all day to find birds; things slow down during the middle of [...]
