Mae Wong to Chiang Saen: 9 - 23 November 2012







9 - 23 November 2012.
Hot in the lowlands. Pleasant in the highlands. Cloudy with rain at Mae Wong National Park, Doi Ang Khang and Thaton.
Bueng Boraphet, Mae Wong National Park, Mae Ping National Park, Doi Inthanon National Park, Doi Ang Khang, Doi Lang, Thaton, Chiang Saen and Huay Hong Khrai.

9 Nov. With Anton and Veronika Sojer, Ian Dugdale and Games Punjapa Phetsri. As the others had never extensively birded the north, this trip was aimed at northern familiarisation. Thai Airways to Bangkok where everyone met up. From here we headed up to Nakhon Sawan to overnight in town.

10 Nov. Early start to arrive at the Water Bird Sanctuary for a dawn breakfast in the parking area. Onto our pre-arranged boat by 07:15 and the next four hours spent slowly working our way across the lake and back again, seeing at least 15 Spot-billed Pelican, a number of White-browed Crake, Watercock and hundreds of Streaked Weaver. A new, concrete, boardwalk has been constructed which loops from the monument area to the new toilet block. Back to town, checked-out and onward to Mae Wong National Park, where we arrived around 16:00.

Once accommodation sorted, a chat with one of the rangers indicated some good birds in the previous week including Rufous-necked Hornbill and Burmese Yuhina. The last couple of hours of the day spent along the road just upstream from the campsite, hoping for Crested Kingfisher but without luck. Blue-throated Blue Flycatcher probably the best bird of the late afternoon. All in all quite a circus with numerous cars and motorcycles ascending the mountain, as well as the campsite and park bungalows fully booked. After a take-away dinner from Khlong Lan town a night bird session along the entrance road revealed absolutely nothing. Overnight in the park.

11 Nov. Drove up to Chong Yen at first light. On arrival at summit, as expected judging from the volume of cars yesterday, the campsite was packed and cars backed-up all over the place. However, most left by 09:00 mainly on account of the biting flies which were worse here than usual and particularly bad according to the rangers on site. The morning was spent mainly scanning the valleys for hornbills, but none seen. Around 12:00 we descended a kilometre and birded the road, seeing Pale Blue Flycatcher and Olive Bulbul. Returned to the summit again, this time splitting up to cover both the hides and the road. Not particularly constructive but a Grey Peacock-Pheasant was very obliging. The last hour of light spent with another walk down the road, with Eyebrowed Wren-Babbler, Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler and Collared Babbler. All in all a fairly slow day with some key birds not found - it being particularly disappointing not to find Rufous-necked Hornbill which had been present yesterday. Dinner in town, then late drive back to the accommodation.

12 Nov. Cloudy and overcast, and decidedly cool at the upper levels at Chong Yen. The first hour of light very productive with Burmese Yuhina, White-necked Laughingthrush and Rufous-throated Partridge. Around 08:30 rain started and continued for two hours when, as it didn't look like easing, we descended to bird lower levels and avoid the rain.

However, little seen. Lunch at the park canteen where a Red-throated Pipit found feeding on the grass clearing. As weather was clearing, back to the summit, with the last three hours spent around the campsite and scanning valleys. Good numbers of Chestnut-flanked White-eye, a pair of Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler, Red-billed Scimitar Babbler and Collared Babbler. At 17:00 rain started in earnest so returned to accommodation at the park HQ. A cool and damp night.

13 Nov. Nice to be able to bird again in shorts and short-sleeved shirts, with a short morning birding session at lower levels around the campsites along the river. The first hour was spent waiting hopefully for a fly-by Crested Kingfisher but no such luck, so continued with a longer walk along the road. Best birds included Sulphur-breasted Warbler and a few Swinhoe's Minivet. As the vehicle had been displaying some warning lights over the last couple of days we left early to drop into the dealer in Kampaengphet where several mechanics laboured for a couple of hours eventually identifying the problem as the electrical sensors themselves, without any mechanical cause. Continued to Li. Evening rain somewhat unseasonal.

14 Nov. Overcast and cool as we headed into Mae Ping National Park, running into Neil Lawton along the way. All morning spent along the track to Thung Kik with a number of the usual suspects seen such as Black-headed Woodpecker, Changeable Hawk-Eagle, Common Flameback, Large Cuckooshrike, Red-billed Blue Magpie and Tickell's Blue Flycatcher. Some of the less often seen species included Grey-headed Parakeet, Common Woodshrike, Black-winged Cuckooshrike and Two-barred Warbler. Lunch in Li town and a couple of hours drive to Doi Inthanon. Our first stop was at the campsite with an attempt for Black-tailed Crake, which was not even heard. The last hour spent at the Siriphum Garden and waterfall which was almost totally birdless. The only bird of note seen all afternoon being Eastern Buzzard.

15 Nov. Up to the top of Doi Inthanon for sunrise. Surprisingly few people today. Temperature was moderate at around 10 degrees, with no wind. We spent a few hours in the parking area, the boardwalk and along the upper stretches of road. The expected species included Ashy Wood Pigeon, Ashy-throated Warbler, Blyth's Leaf Warbler, Pygmy Wren-babbler and White-browed Shortwing, along with the less usual Chestnut-bellied Rock Thrush. Lunch at the park headquarters canteen and then a drive over to the Mae Pen campsite area with the whole afternoon spent there, seeing Silver-breasted Broadbill, Sulphur-breasted Warbler, Rosy Minivet, Slaty-backed Forktail and White-capped Redstart.

16 Nov. We started at the second checkpoint at Km 37.5 just after dawn and a hectic couple of hours produced Rufous-backed Sibia, Wedge-tailed Green Pigeon, Chestnut-capped Warbler, Claudia's Leaf Warbler and Rufous-bellied Niltava. A subsequent stroll up the road held White-headed Bulbul and Chestnut-vented Nuthatch. Around 10:00 we decided to try the Wachirathan Waterfall as we'd missed some key waterside birds yesterday. Again we initially were without luck, but a dedicated wait finally rewarded us with good views of Plumbeous Water Redstart and Slaty-backed Forktail.

Following lunch at the waterfall we headed up to Km 34.5 and took an extended walk along the jeep track, recording a single Collared Falconet. With the last hour of the day we retried the campsite, where we heard a couple of Black-tailed Crake which unfortunately did not show themselves.

17 Nov. Due to being Saturday we decided to avoid the summit and birding along the road in favour of off-road birding along the Km 13 track. Decidedly devoid of birds with three hours spent finding at best Black-headed Woodpecker, but little else. Around 10:00 we left and headed to Doi Ang Khang, arriving late afternoon to wet conditions. The last hour of light spent in cool. damp conditions at the Km 19.5 campsite where we found Stripe-breasted Woodpecker, Japanese Tit, Common Rosefinch, Rusty-necked Scimitar Babbler and a number of Cook's Swift passing over.

18 Nov. As the day was overcast with fog we were forced to descend, and started the day by driving down the Arunothai road to about Km 34 where we were finally below the cloud base. En route down we had a male Hume's Pheasant by the roadside. Most of the morning was spent birding between Km 34 and Km 32, seeing Barred Cuckoo-Dove, Thick-billed Green Pigeon, Wedge-tailed Green Pigeon, Striated Bulbul, Greenish Warbler, Claudia's Leaf Warbler and a couple of Sapphire Flycatcher. With improving conditions we returned to the area around the Chinese cemetery and had White-browed Laughingthrush and Siberian Stonechat. After lunch we headed to the area of the Ang Khang Pagoda and in a fruiting tree had a good selection of bulbuls plus two Spectacled Barwing.

Rain started at 14:00 but ceased by 15:00 when we entered the King's Project and behind the Mushroom farm found Black-breasted Thrush and White-tailed Robin. The late afternoon was spent again near the Chinese cemetery but little seen and rain set in around 17:30.

19 Nov. Another damp and foggy start. Arrived at the Chinese cemetery at daybreak to fog, so continued down the Arunothai road and spent an hour or so along the roadside picking up Spot-throated Babbler, Claudia's Leaf Warbler and several Rusty-cheeked Scimitar Babbler. Short heavy rain meant time was cut short, so decided to check out the Burma road. Being on the other side of the mountain the weather was much drier, though still cloudy, and a short session at the Ang Khang Pagoda was not really productive. Decided to continue further along the road where we stopped randomly and in improving conditions found several feeding flocks. Highlights were Martens's Warbler and a couple of Pallas's Leaf Warbler. We left Ang Khang around 13:00 and drove to Thaton. Latest development in Thaton is a newly opened 7-11, so from now it will be possible to get an early coffee before heading up the hill. Allowing for conditions to cool we headed into the surrounding fields around 16:00, and in a couple of hours found two Rufous-winged Buzzard and Siberian Rubythroat together with the usual suspects.

20 Nov. Early start up Doi Lang, with a first stop at the lower sections of evergreen forest. As not particularly productive we continued up to the upper army camp where we hoped to find a variety of species feeding on the food put out here. However only Dark-backed Sibia present and after an hour we continued up to the viewpoint high on the mountain. Eventually we tracked down Crested Finchbill and Brown-breasted Bulbul, and added Common Rosefinch and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher for good measure. The rest of the day spent slowly working our way back, picking up a number of interesting birds including White-gorgeted Flycatcher, Whiskered Yuhina and Yellow-browed Tit. All in all a slow day with some key species remaining unfound. The road up has been repaired in the really bad places and a team of guys were busy clearing vegetation from the roadside in the upper stretches, which has combined to improve the road to the summit considerably over the last month.

21 Nov. A much better day weather wise, so we headed straight up to the upper army camp. Unfortunately a bit of a zoo up there with blaring radio and friends of friends camped out, with nothing conducive to photographing any feeding birds. So, lacking the photo opportunities we started to walk downhill after the camp. The early hour and the cool, bright, weather provided excellent birding and within the first hour we'd found, Black-throated Parrotbill, Whiskered Yuhina, Spectacled Barwing and Scarlet-faced Liocichla.

The remainder of the morning was spent at various spots near the summit with a number of good species including Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher, Aberrant Bush Warbler and Buff-barred Warbler. The excellent weather allowed us to bird throughout the day, and although it became slow in mid afternoon by 16:00 the cooling conditions gave another burst of activity with no less than four Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker and a Crimson-breasted Woodpecker. A stop en route back to Thaton produced White-bellied Redstart and numbers of passing Asian House Martin and Cook's Swift.

22 Nov. Early into the fields near the Mekok River, but little of note seen, so headed to Chiang Saen where we arrived at 14:00, but still hot. Visited the Nong Bong Khai Non-hunting area, finding Northern Shoveler. Passing the northern shore of the lake a scan produced Ferruginous Duck and Tufted Duck. At the harrier roost for the final hour of the day with around 150 Pied Harrier and Eastern Marsh Harrier coming very late.

23 Nov. Early fog on the Mekong was as usual present, but cleared around 07:30. A couple of hours produced a single River Lapwing, at least five Red Avadavat, Grey-throated Martin and some nicely performing Chestnut-capped Babbler. It became hot quite early. Drove to Chiang Mai, stopping en route at Huay Hong Khrai where four male Green Peafowl were seen, though they proved to be quite skittish.
