Birding/ Birdwatching in Moo Ban Pramong, Bangkok

Tuesday 29th of November 2016 and we left Sukhumvit Soi 23 behind just after 6 o'clock in the morning. I was in the back enjoying a bottle of Pepsi MAX and I was looking forward to some birding at Moo Ban Pramong.

I had prepared a birding map for Moo Ban Pramong and I will update it when I come back here a second time. I will have to be home around lunch as they will bring back my curtains that have Yet another Smiley on www.aladdin.stbeen away for cleaning.
And I will go for a MRI scanning of my knee tonight, so it will only be a quick look for spoonbills and Kingfishers today. So come back here to www.aladdin.st in January and I will have up dated the map with more information.

We drove past Krua Baan Pramong but I didn't see any of the Collared Kingfishers. We continued to the end of the road and we turned around driving back up past the Krua Baan Pramong. We continued to drive along the road towards the Dolphin Viewing Point. We had water filled fields with Egrets and Little Cormorants on our left hand side.

On the right hand side we had buildings between the road and the creek. On this side I saw so many Kingfishers that I had never seen before.

We stop and I try to come close to a Black-capped Kingfisher

We are driving around in the car and we can come close to the birds. As soon as I try to get out of the car the birds fly away. Great Myna, there are plenty of them. They are also called White-vented Mynas. I have put the bird down as Great Myna.

We had seen many Kingfishers, 3 different kinds. My driver is really a big help. Before he never saw any birds but this time he was spotting birds like never before. Now I only hope to see a Stork-billed Kingfisher and some spoon bill.
