19 Dec. With Roger McNeil. Having completed a week in central areas, and now armed with a somewhat mixed target list of northern mountain birds, we met at Chiang Mai airport and headed to Doi Inthanon, arriving just after dark.

20 Dec. Early morning to the summit of Doi Inthanon. We started with a walk down the road from which we had a number of flyover Ashy Wood Pigeon as well as Green-tailed Sunbird and Mrs. Gould's Sunbird. As rather windy, with many species keeping low, we retreated to the summit boardwalk which almost immediately produced Dark-sided Thrush, and over the next couple of hours more sunbirds, Buff-barred Warbler, Blyth's Leaf Warbler, Yellow-browed Tit and Ashy-throated Warbler. Late morning along the Km 37.5 track with Maroon Oriole, Rufous-backed Sibia and Chestnut-crowned Warbler. After a lunch at Mr. Daeng's spent the afternoon along the Km 34.5 track, following the ridge trail for a couple of kilometres. Best birds were White-necked Laughingthrush, Pallas's Leaf Warbler, Hume's Treecreeper, Chestnut-vented Nuthatch, Rufous Turtle Dove, Yellow-vented Flowerpecker and Grey Treepie. Finished the day at the campsite, looking for Black-tailed Crake, but no luck.

21 Dec. Just after dawn to the Parakeet Conservation Area outside the park. The owners have done a great job in now erecting an observation platform, the design of which leaves a heap to be desired - basically the roof blocks the view and only one person at a time can obtain a decent view. Horrible design. Still 20 plus Blossom-headed Parakeet were very welcome, with some perched quite close.

For an hour here the birds were very active with numerous Golden-fronted Leafbird, Chestnut-tailed Starling and a couple of Rufous Treepie. Back into the park and up to Km 13 where we walked a couple of hours, picking up Black-headed Woodpecker, White-bellied Woodpecker, Orange-breasted Trogon and Large Cuckooshrike. An additional hour along the river around Km 13 failed to turn up Black-backed Forktail. After lunch spent quite some time walking the full length of the Km 37.5 jeep track, finding three Vivid Niltava and a pair of White-gorgeted Flycatcher. The final couple of hours at the summit where we eventually nailed Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker at the eleventh hour.

22 Dec. Awoke this morning to find the world had not finished. Pity - was looking forward to experiencing the end of the world. So back to the drudgery of birding, we started off at the Km 34.5 jeep track, to a cool, sunny and beautiful day. Allowing ourselves a couple of hours here we found Mountain Bamboo Partridge, Rufous-backed Sibia, Spectacled Barwing, Chestnut-capped Babbler and Rusty-cheeked Scimitar Babbler. The biggest surprise was a group of three Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker - the same species we'd tried so hard for at the summit the previous two days. A fairly slow drive, through bad traffic in Chiang Mai, to Chiang Dao. After checking-in we immediately departed to Doi Kum Fa in order to search for Giant Nuthatch. This proved unfruitful - for the second time in recent trips - though we added Himalayan Swiftlet and Japanese Tit to the list. Great weather, but otherwise disappointing. Late return to Chiang Dao.

23 Dec. Out to the temple just after sun-up. A big surprise was a calling Spot-bellied Eagle-Owl along the road. An even bigger surprise was it flying over, presumably to roost, now well after sunrise - a very nice start to the day. Two hours were then spent in the temple area, mostly from the top overlooking the surrounding hills and canopy. Species seen included Streaked Wren-Babbler actually inside the temple, Black Baza, Plain Flowerpecker, Purple-naped Sunbird, Black-hooded Oriole, Striated Yuhina, Brown-cheeked Fulvetta and Maroon Oriole. Breakfast and checked-out of Malee's, after which we took the back road as far as the checkpoint where a short walk up-stream produced Black-backed Forktail and Blue-eared Kingfisher. As few interesting butterflies in evidence, it not being sunny enough, we headed toward Ang Khang. En route several raptors included Rufous-winged Buzzard, Eastern Buzzard and Oriental Honey Buzzard. Mid afternoon at the King's Project we ended up stuck behind three photo hides, but still managed three White-tailed Robin, Black-breasted Thrush and a Rufous-bellied Niltava. Late afternoon at the Km 19.5 viewpoint but no sign of any Giant Nuthatch although Buff-throated Warbler found.

24 Dec. Surprisingly warm at dawn at 12°C, due to cloud and mist. Started at the cemetery, where species encountered included White-browed Laughingthrush, Rusty-cheeked Scimitar Babbler, and Aberrant Bush Warbler. As still foggy we descended down to about Km 32 along the Arunothai road. Rather slow going and in an hour the best find was a group of Silver-eared Mesia. Returned to higher elevation which produced Chinese Leaf Warbler and Sapphire Flycatcher, and a group of Hume's Pheasant that were seen fleetingly. Lunch at Ban Luang, where in the garden at least 50 White-headed Bulbul were gorging themselves on papaya. Off to Km 21 where at least 20 shady-looking locals were hacking the forest. Around here now, a fair number of the larger pines have been removed, trees ring-barked, scrub cleared and smaller trees taken out. The whole area is heading downhill fast. A couple of hours were good for Spectacled Barwing, Rufous-throated Niltava and Himalayan Bluetail.

We finished the day along the Mae Phu Valley, walking the full length of it after dark hoping for Hodgson's Frogmouth. Alas, the only nightbird was a single distant Mountain Scops Owl.

25 Dec. As no presents at the end of the bed out into the field with fog and low cloud. Ignoring the poor birding conditions we started at the cemetery, which now seems to have been turned into a dump - car tyres, rubbish and further tree chopping continue to deteriorate the environment. An hour walk around here produced White-browed Laughingthrush, brief views of a disappearing Chestnut Bunting, Aberrant Bush Warbler and Brown-breasted Bulbul. From here we headed down the Arunothai Road a little, but very quiet so descended to Km 32 which didn't improve the birding other than Black-winged Cuckooshrike. A sad sight of a Leopard Cat as a road casualty.

Early afternoon in the King's Project was quite productive, not least because the flood of photographers from yesterday had left. Birds, now hungry from not being fed today, included Black-throated Thrush, Japanese Thrush, four White-tailed Robin, White-rumped Shama and a Rufous-bellied Niltava. A late afternoon visit to the Ang Khang Pagoda and a walk along the No Lae road, followed by return to the accommodation and some late afternoon Asian House Martin passing over.

26 Dec. Deciding to try something different, we headed to the Km 21 trail. Cloud not as bad today as previously and in a couple of hours along the trail here we encountered a number of usual suspects such as Blyth's Shrike-Babbler, Martens's Warbler, Long-tailed Minivet and Chinese Leaf Warbler. Highlight of the morning was a Spot-breasted Parrotbill which allowed close approach.

With the recent opening up of the western side of Doi Lang we thought we'd try some exploration as others had been finding good birds here.

The drive up from Fang on this side of the mountain is in considerably better condition than the eastern road. It's also amazing to look at the back of Doi Pha Hom Pok where a considerable number of large landslides mar the landscape. The top section at the pass has now been repaired and looks more like a motorway than the forest track previously. An army post a few kilometres from the top seems fine with allowing birders through and over the top. However, we spent the afternoon on the western side around the newly famous photo-shoot area for Spot-breasted Laughingthrush which also produced an incredible collection of Rusty-naped Pitta, White-gorgeted Flycatcher, Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher, Slaty-blue Flycatcher, Large Niltava and Rufous-bellied Niltava. Lower down we had a Giant Nuthatch fly across the road. Drove to Thaton.

27 Dec. Set off pre-dawn up the eastern side of Doi Lang. A planned first stop didn't materialise due to low cloud and fog, so we stopped higher up where in a burst of activity we found Red-billed Scimitar Babbler, Collared Babbler, White-necked Laughingthrush, Mountain Bamboo Partridge and Pale-billed Parrotbill. Good numbers of Mountain Imperial Pigeon active early on. A longer walk in forest below the upper army camp gave few new birds, so we pushed on to the the camp itself which held Dark-backed Sibia and Whiskered Yuhina. A lunch stop at the Km 37 viewpoint, then across the summit to the drier, western side, where we started at the photo-shoot. Surprisingly very different to yesterday with no Spot-breasted Laughingthrush nor Rusty-naped Pitta, present, though new from yesterday were a female Siberian Rubythroat and a small party of Silver-eared Laughingthrush. A walk along the road late afternoon held the much wanted, Giant Nuthatch, plus two groups of White-browed Laughingthrush. Ran into a couple of other, local, birders who kindly put us on to Spot-breasted Parrotbill and White-bellied Redstart. Finished the day with a small group of Pallas's Leaf Warbler, then an hour's drive to Thaton via Fang.

28 Dec. Up the western side of Doi Lang at first light. As expected, a number of birders and photographers were already out and about, with some even setting up hides in the road. Looked like the New Year holiday was already starting, and likely extremely busy over the next few days. As all the other photographers were trying to get themselves run over we were the only ones at the laughingthrush photo-shoot, so set up our hide and within seconds had a pair of Spot-breasted Laughingthrush. Over the next hour a single Rusty-naped Pitta, Siberian Rubythroat and a troupe of Silver-eared Laughingthrush. A walk along the road produced a couple of groups of White-browed Laughingthrush, Spot-breasted Parrotbill, Pallas's Warbler and a Scarlet Finch. Following a pleasant breakfast on the Burma side, we headed up and over the top to join some more photographers at the viewpoint, with some brief views of a Fire-tailed Sunbird keeping low in the wind. Down the eastern side of the mountain to the long track which we walked for a good couple of kilometres finding several Hume's Treecreeper. Left around 17:00 to drive to Thaton.

29 Dec. Drove to Chiang Saen where early fog across the lake prevented any scanning for ducks, so had to content ourselves with birding around the edge, with Burmese Shrike, Ruddy-breasted Crake heard and Chestnut-tailed Starling. After 08:00 the fog cleared and scanning from a couple of vantage points gave us Ferruginous Duck, Common Pochard, Tufted Duck and at least 50 Northern Pintail and Garganey. Returned to Chiang Mai, via Huay Hong Khrai where we had a couple of Green Peafowl. Driving on the roads fairly slow due to holiday traffic. Drop off at airport.
