25 February - 18 March 2014.
Dry with variable cloud. Much smoke pollution. Warm to very hot. Some rain.
Mae Taeng Irrigation Project, Fang paddies, Doi Lang, Doi Ang Khang, Doi Inthanon National Park, Mae Wong National Park, Thaksin Maharat National Park, Mae Ping National Park, Wat Phra Phutthabat Noi, Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve, Thap Lan National Park, Kaeng Krachan National Park, Laem Phak Bia, Pak Thale and Khao Takrao.

With Fred van Gessel, Kees Sharringa and Jelle Sharringa. A stroll around a variety of sites, both birding and sound recording.

25 Feb. After pick up at Chiang Mai airport mid afternoon, headed north to Fang with a brief stop en route at Mae Taeng, where along the canal we found easily a few Wire-tailed Swallow. Having checked into our hotel and with an hour of light to spare, we headed north of town to try some of the dry paddies. Here we recorded Pied Harrier, Long-tailed Minivet, Dusky Warbler, Pin-tailed Snipe and Eurasian Kestrel. Dinner and a crash out from international flights.

26 Feb. All day on Doi Lang. Most of the morning was spent at, and around, the lower photoshoot localities, where we recorded Giant Nuthatch, Mountain Bamboo Partridge, Mountain Hawk-Eagle, Slender-billed Oriole, Maroon Oriole, Striated Bulbul, Buff-throated Warbler, White-browed Laughingthrush, Rufous-backed Sibia, Grey-headed Parrotbill, Spot-breasted Parrotbill and Hume's Treecreeper. Heading higher, much time was spent at the upper army camp with Chestnut Thrush, Grey-winged Blackbird, Red-flanked Bluetail and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher. A stop at the San Ju viewpoint failed to locate either Golden Bush Robin or Fire-tailed Sunbird.

Late afternoon we retraced our steps back to Fang, with Chestnut Bunting en route. Around 22:00 in the evening there appeared to be a huge punch-up among the hotel staff with flying objects and loud arguments that only abated late in the night after the arrival of the police.

27 Feb. In a reversal of yesterday's plan of attack, we started near the top of Doi Lang with time spent, unsuccessfully, trying for Long-tailed Thrush.

A similar retry for Chestnut-headed Tesia also failed, so we headed to the San Ju viewpoint, where in better morning conditions we had Golden Bush Robin and Fire-tailed Sunbird. Also ran into the Wings tour group who kindly provided us with morning coffee, us having forgotten to bring ours with us.

The remainder of the morning spent along the road between San Ju and the upper army camp, with the highlight being a pair of Spotted Elachura, as well as Black-eared Shrike-babbler, Whiskered Yuhina and Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler. Headed down the eastern flank of the mountain with a few stops, finding a number of Rufous Turtle Dove and hearing what we thought to be White-bellied Woodpecker. Several new beware of mines signs have been placed along the eastern side of the mountain. Old mines from border disputes or new mine fields?

It was notable in the evening that several new hotel staff had appeared to replace those injured or fired after last night's fracas.

28 Feb. Decided to give Fang paddies a second try, where we spent three hours. Best birds were Pied Harrier, Rufous-winged Buzzard, Common Snipe, Burmese Shrike, Oriental Skylark, 300 Black-winged Stilt, Siberian Rubythroat and at least 120 House Sparrow. A short drive to Doi Ang Khang with lunch and a thrush display in the garden, featured Grey-sided Thrush, Black-breasted Thrush, Eyebrowed Thrush and Grey-winged Blackbird. In the heat of the afternoon we visited the photoshoot inside the King's Project where we had Black-breasted Thrush, Silver-eared Mesia, Rufous-bellied Niltava and White-tailed Robin. The last couple of hours at Km 21 which produced White-browed Piculet and Clicking Shrike-babbler.

1 Mar. The early morning along the Arunothai road, but rather birdless and amazingly hot by 09:00 already. Little seen, though Russet Bush Warbler heard but as usual remaining unseen. No luck either with Mrs. Hume's Pheasant. Headed to Km 21 trail where a number of species recorded including Bianchi's Warbler, Small Niltava and Martens's Warbler. A siesta in the heat of the day. Later afternoon on the Mae Phue valley trail was very quiet, with only White-necked Laughingthrush of note. A dusk nightbird session held two Hodgson's Frogmouth calling - close but no cigar - as well as Himalayan Wood Owl and Grey Nightjar.

2 Mar. Another early morning along the Arunothai road. Much more birdy than yesterday with excellent views of Mrs. Hume's Pheasant and Collared Owlet, as well as Claudia's Warbler, Chestnut-bellied Rock Thrush, Japanese Tit and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher. Later morning at Km 21, though little found in the climbing heat. Another siesta in the heat of the day with White-capped Redstart and a few thrushes from the restaurant balcony. After 16:00, we birded along the Nor Lae road, with Slaty-blue Flycatcher but little else. A final nightbirding session only revealed Grey Nightjar.

3 Mar. With the prospect of a longer drive to Doi Inthanon, our time at Doi Ang Khang was limited to an hour, and was spent along the upper areas before the Chinese cemetery. Several Spot-breasted Parrotbill were a pleasant surprise, with Spot-throated Babbler and Russet Bush Warbler again heard only. A six hour drive to Inthanon via coffee, lunch and a supermarket stop in Chiang Mai. The later afternoon spent along the Km 34 track, but few birds - although both Vivid Niltava and Rufous-backed Sibia heard. As Black-tailed Crake had been seen at the campsite yesterday evening we gave that a try from 17:30 onward, but not even heard.

4 Mar. All day at Doi Inthanon. First up was a dozen Speckled Wood Pigeon readily found, but Ashy Wood Pigeon proved a lot harder with only a single bird passing quickly. The summit boardwalk was surprisingly quiet, but produced Dark-sided Thrush, Snowy-browed Flycatcher and White-browed Shortwing. No sign of the recent Eurasian Woodcock or Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker. A walk, late morning, for a couple of hours along the Km 37 track was very productive in general with a great selection of species though nothing particularly rare. After lunch, a hot afternoon along the Km 34 track was largely birdless. We finished at the campsite hoping for Black-tailed Crake, but only heard.

5 Mar. With only a couple of hours available we opted to work the lower areas of Doi Inthanon, where we found White-rumped Falcon, Collared Falconet, Black Baza and Black-headed Woodpecker. Continued to Tak, stopping for a car service, and on to Khlong Lan, where we overnighted just outside Mae Wong National Park. Increasing amounts of smoke pollution from burning fires throughout the day and very hot; generally unpleasant.

6 Mar. All day in Mae Wong, mostly at Chong Yen and the top few kilometres of road. Very windy for most of the day, but rather clear with clean air. Just in case we missed the smog and pollution from below the ranger at Chong Yen lit a nice smoky leaf fire to pollute the air. The wind made finding birds around the summit difficult, so we concentrated in the morning on the forest, with Spot-necked Babbler and White-throated Bulbul the highlights. After lunch sat at the hide and after an hour were rewarded with excellent views of Grey Peacock-Pheasant and White-necked Laughingthrush. In the heat of the day we hung out at the lower viewpoint and managed to photograph two different "scaly thrushes", neither of which, despite the photos were positively identified. Late afternoon back in the forest with Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler. Descent back into the terribly smoky lowlands with temperatures still at 39 degrees at dusk.

7 Mar. Another day around Chong Yen. On the road up a pair of Kalij Pheasant. Much nicer weather, with almost no wind meant the biting flies were out in force. Highlight of the morning was a flyover male Rufous-necked Hornbill, but a walk down the road also produced Hodgson's Hawk-Cuckoo, Long-tailed Broadbill, Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler and Rufous-browed Flycatcher. A longer siesta in the heat of the day around the lower viewpoint, then another walk along the road, with Olive Bulbul, White-throated Bulbul and another White's / Scaly Thrush. Another pair of Kalij Pheasant on the way out. Still very smoky and polluted.

8 Mar. Heavy smoke again this morning. Headed north to Thaksin Maharat, where conditions windy. Whilst not ideal having to retrace our steps, we'd reckoned that avoiding the weekend circus at Mae Wong was a good idea. Olive Bulbul and White-throated Bulbul were found relatively easily, and the weather cool and pleasant. Having successfully located our targets we drove to Mae Ping, where the temperature was almost 40 degrees. In to the park late afternoon, where we found the forest still smoldering from the fires and burning of the last few days. A walk along the Thung Kik road between Km 1 and 3 was surprisingly good with White-bellied Woodpecker, Black-headed Woodpecker, Common Flameback, Rosy Minivet and Rufous Treepie. Night birding recorded Oriental Scops Owl and Brown Hawk-Owl.

9 Mar. Morning in Mae Ping again with a longer walk along the Thung Kik road - Collared Falconet, Grey-headed Parakeet, Violet Cuckoo, White-bellied Woodpecker, Black-headed Woodpecker, Black-winged Cuckooshrike, Rosy Minivet, Red-billed Blue Magpie, Burmese Nuthatch and Asian Brown Flycatcher. There then followed a long hot drive to Saraburi, arriving just after dark.

10 Mar. A short visit to Wat Phra Phutthabat Noi for the Limestone Wren-Babbler that was very successful with up to eight birds seen and heard. Little else of note, so drove toward Sakaerat where we took some time finding a decent place to stay. Late afternoon in Sakaerat where up to 20 Siamese Fireback seen, as well as good numbers of Red-breasted Parakeet and a few Brown Prinia.

11 Mar. Birded Thap Lan from 07:00 until it became too hot at 11:00. Birds quite vocal and a good selection of more uncommon species found - Yellow-footed Green Pigeon, Common Woodshrike, Indochinese Cuckooshrike, Collared Falconet, Black-headed Woodpecker, Red-breasted Parakeet, Brown Prinia and Chinese Francolin. Late afternoon we again visited Sakaerat, this time concentrating on the drier open habitat. A short afternoon thunderstorm had dropped rain on Sakaerat and by the time we were there the temperature was a pleasant 25 degrees. Species much the same as yesterday with Red-breasted Parakeet, Brown Prinia and Greater Flameback. More evergreen habitat held Red-headed Trogon and Green-eared Barbet.

12 Mar. Early morning at Sakaerat, where in a few hours we found Siamese Fireback, Green-legged Partridge, Orange-breasted Trogon, Common Green Magpie, Two-barred Warbler, Claudia's Warbler, Large Scimitar Babbler, Scaly-crowned Babbler, Siberian Blue Robin and Hainan Blue Flycatcher. Just before lunch we started the long, tedious drive to Kaeng Krachan, with heavy traffic on the western approaches to Bangkok. Eventually arrived at Kaeng Krachan just before dark.

13 Mar. Pretty much directly up to Km 27 where we spent all morning, unsuccessfully, looking for Ratchet-tailed Treepie. However, some very good birds found, such as Kalij Pheasant, Grey Peacock-Pheasant heard, Changeable Hawk-Eagle, Silver-breasted Broadbill, Yellow-vented Green Pigeon, Tickell's Brown Hornbill, Black-and-buff Woodpecker, Rufous Woodpecker and Sulphur-breasted Warbler. By lunchtime we'd reached the pass at Km 30, where we lounged around in the heat admiring the views. The slow return to the lowlands was again productive with Red-bearded Bee-eater, Bamboo Woodpecker, Siberian Thrush and Ratchet-tailed Treepie. Late afternoon at the stream crossings with Dusky Broadbill and a collection on puddling butterflies.

14 Mar. In the morning we concentrated on the lower forest between the stream crossings. Tickell's Brown Hornbill and Ferruginous Partridge were heard but not seen. A few hours here gave us Dusky Broadbill, Banded Broadbill, Silver-breasted Broadbill and two close Blue Pitta. Late afternoon we tried the track leading past the youth camp as something new. Probably too hot and little seen other than a close Green-legged Partridge. On the drive out a pair of Golden-crested Myna and Silver-breasted Broadbill heard.

15 Mar. Early morning along the entrance road, concentrating between Km 8 and Km 10, with Square-tailed Drongo-Cuckoo, Greater Yellownape, Greater Flameback, Thick-billed Green Pigeon and a disappearing Malayan Night Heron. Around 10:00 we hit the road past the youth camp, but very quite, so decided to try the main track between the river crossings. As expected, being a weekend, there were hoards of people, though we did manage Moustached Hawk-Cuckoo and Tickell's Brown Hornbill heard again. Late afternoon around the pond at Ban Maka, with Ruddy-breasted Crake, Bronze-winged Jacana, Oriental Reed Warbler and Yellow Bittern.

16 Mar. All morning at Song Nok hide. The hot weather and presumed breeding of many species meant far fewer birds than expected. However, some interesting species included Kalij Pheasant, Green-legged Partridge, Racquet-tailed Treepie and Common Green Magpie. A short drive to Phetchaburi and on to Pak Thale where three hour grilling waders failed to produce the target Spoon-billed Sandpiper or Nordmann's Greenshank. However, Dunlin, Broad-billed Sandpiper, Painted Stork and a whole host of other waders were of interest. Many Javan Pong Heron coming into breeding plumage, though interestingly not the presumed Chinese Pond Heron present.

17 Mar. An early return to Pak Thale, where it took three hours to find two Spoon-billed Sandpiper. In the process we came across Dunlin, Far Eastern Curlew and a few Nordmann's Greenshank, but the major surprise was Oriental Plover, in full breeding plumage passing close by, and heading north. Flushed with success we headed to Laem Phak Bia saltpans to try for Asian Dowitcher, but many salt workers and trucks meant birds had abandoned promising areas. After lunch we headed to the sandspit with Khun Daeng, with the tide initially very low and extensive amounts of mudflats. Chinese Egret and many waders in evidence, as well as Pallas's Gull and Black-tailed Gull on the sand bars. A search of the spit found Malaysian Plover but no White-faced Plover. With the rising tide, on our return we revisited the saltpans where we found a single Asian Dowitcher in company with Great Knot, Grey Plover, Black-tailed Godwit and Spotted Redshank. Overnight in Phetchaburi.

18 Mar. With all the wader targets found we switched our attention to the two harder weaver species in the area, by birding the field and canal edges around Phetchaburi. Both Golden Weaver and Streaked Weaver were found in small numbers as well as Peregrine Falcon, Bronze-winged Jacana and many of the more usual suspects. A quick stop off at Khao Takrao held only a few Garganey plus Black-headed Ibis and a Mangrove Whistler. Drive back to Bangkok not too stressful and an overnight near the airport with departures the following morning.
