Eastern Jungle Crow, Corvus levaillantii, อีกา

According to information on internet the Slender-billed crow should not be in Thailand. But it is mentioned in the book “A Field Guide to the Birds of Thailand and South East Asia” by Craig Robson The description in the book as per below:
Very similar to the Large-billed crow but slimmer with shorter, squarer-ended tail. The Large-billed have a steep forehead. I don't know, but I put it down as the Slender-billed crow

So I had put down these crows as Large-billed and Slender-billed

But I learned from BirdForum that all the crows I have seen is the Eastern Jungle Crow. And I got an explanation on the forehead:
They are all Eastern Jungle Crows, posture varies according to whether they raise or lower the crown feathers!

Thanks to Grahame Walbridge at BirdForum for this interesting information!! And that is even though it was a lot of trouble for me to change all my records! See full forum thread HERE

Thank's to Nick Upton at www.thaibirding.com for HOT birding tip. His web page is a ONE STOP for everything you need for bird watching in Thailand. There are reviews of the birding sites with maps and information.

And if you like Nick Upton's web page you will also like www.norththailandbirding.com I have used this page together with Nick Upton's page when planning my birding tours. Excellent reviews and information about the birding sites.

I also got the Thai names of the birds from www.norththailandbirding.com. There is a bird check list with all the names in English and Thai. And of course also the Scientific Name. Down load the birdlist in Microsoft Excel format at www.norththailandbirding.com Or down load the Excel sheet by clicking HERE

And my new aid, maybe, and I say maybe the best aid. I brought my mobile phone as my SIM card have stopped working and I tried to get it to work again so I can use the internet. Thus I had my phone in my pocket on my first game drive in Jim Corbett National Park.

We saw a bird and I asked my Guide and the driver if they had a pen and a paper as I had forgot my pen and paper in my room. I remembered my LG phone and I recorded the name. And thus I will always bring my phone. Writing the name in the car and I have found more than once that it can be hard to read what I had wrote when I'm back in my room.

So now I always have my mobile in my pocket and it has been a great help.
