Photographic Report From a Recent Trip: Northern Thailand – Thailand Birding

After a 15 day trip with just two of us armed with cameras I now have an enormous amount of photos to wade through. I recently finished a 15 day trip with Nick Robinson who has set himself a quest to photograph all of the world’s Leaf Warblers, a tricky task given not only the [...]

“Wasteland” as a Bird Habitat – Thailand Birding
