North Thailand Birding focuses on Birds, Birding and Nature Photography in Thailand. Information covers Birding Sites, Checklists, Trip Reports and Resources, as well as a wealth of background, travel and logistical information. Photo Galleries showcase the extent and variety of the natural wildlife, as well as providing an identification guide for some well represented groups. Birding localities and important places are locatable in a shareable Google Map. A World section features birding trip reports and further bird and wildlife galleries from around the globe.

North Thailand Birding went live in September 2011. This website is an on-going project, initiated back in October 2009 when photographs were first taken and localities first visited. Information, photos, scope and detailed coverage are being updated and expanded continually. For some sections this will be a lengthy process - especially locality information and maps - as time in the field has priority over sitting at a computer!
Planned expansion includes additional localities and checklists. Longer term, additional photo galleries will be added to include dragonflies and damsel flies, other insects and spiders.
25 Aug. Due to foreign travel in remote locations, next major updates in late October. Daily sightings will continue to updated as internet access permits.
