Birding/ Bird watching in Kaeng Krachan

Sunday 14th of June 2020 and I gad my breakfast quarter to 6. My Guide was already there and my Guide from yesterday was there as well. My Guide from yesterday have no experience from guiding outside the National Park so he will come with us today to the first eBird hotspot “Wat Phra Phuttabat Khao Luk Chang”

We left Baan Maka Nature Lodge just after 6 o'clock and I started my eBird app at 06:43 at “Wat Phra Phuttabat Khao Luk Chang”

We parked the car and we walked towards the temple without seeing any birds. We walked back and up the hill to an area that looked like a playground.

We came up with squat and we walked back to the car. 4 birds but the Hair-crested Drongo looked like a Bronzed or Black but my Guide ID the bird as a Hair-crested Drongo and he is a professional so I go for the Hair-crested Drongo. Back at the car and we left the temple area.

Green Bee-eater, Little Green Bee-eater, Merops orientalis, นกจาบคาเล็ก

But as we left the parking we turned left going through a similar forest area until we reached a lake. I managed to get one bird on picture, a Green Bee-eater.

Otherwise the time spent coming here and walking around among the mosquitos was a waste of time and I was happy when we were back in the car leaving the area behind.

We are nearby eBird hotspot “Open areas on Hwy. 3510 at Km.48 vicinity” and we drove by some rice paddies with some birds. So we stopped and went out to walk around to look for birds.

We see a Lesser Whistling-Duck couple in the rice paddy and while trying to walk close to the birds we pass an Asian Koel fledgeling sitting in a tree.

Asian Koel, Eudynamys scolopaceus, นกกาเหว่า

Lesser Whistling Duck, Dendrocygna javanica, Indian Whistling Duck, Lesser Whistling Teal, เป็ดแดง

I also see the White-throated Fantail for the first time in my life, but I never managed to get any pictures. We also spotted the Indochinese Roller, Bronze-winged Jacana and of course many Red-wattled Lapwing. A bird you will see and hear everywhere.

We continue and we reach an intersection and we turn right and we drive toward Hwy. 3510 and we see a couple of Great Egrets otherwise nothing special. We make a U-turn and when we're back at the intersection where we continue straight and we're on a wide gravel road.

Great Egret, Great White Heron, นกยางโทนใหญ่

We spend time with one Indochinese Bushlark trying to get pictures without any luck before we continued on the gravel road. We see the same birds we have seen so many times before. The broad gravel road turned in to a small track.

We reached, well, almost all the way to the end when we turned around. Here was really not any birds to look at and we decided to leave.

Back on the paved road and we turned left. We drove along the road and we passed a bird that I thought was a Brahminy Starling. We made a U-turn to go back to see if we could see the bird again. And I am lucky to see the bird again, now there are 5 or 6 of them.

We make another U-turn as the bird was on the other side of the road. Approaching the birds and they were not scared and I manage to get both pictures and a sound recording.

Listen to the Vinous-breasted Starling

THANKS TO eBIRD FOR CORRECTING MY ID from Brahminy Starling to Vinous-breasted Starling

I see one Vinous-breasted Starling next to the road, I make a U-turn to go back to try to make a recording and to get some pictures. Now I discover 5 or 6 Vinous-breasted Starling next to the road.

I was happy with the pictures so the spirit was high going back to Baan Maka Nature Lodge for lunch before continue bird watching in the afternoon. I have a nice lunch at Baan Maka Nature Lodge and I have time to look at my pictures before I left with my Guide again. We are driving, well, I really don't know where we was driving around.

But we spotted a Dollar Bird and we stopped to try to take some pictures even though the bird was far away. There was one Indian Roller sitting on the wire above us.

Across the road we had one Racket-tailed Treepie in the bushes and I got a picture of the bird and we left the birds behind going to look for more birds.

We continue towards the eBird hotspot “Kaeng Krachan NP--Hin Lad” Following road # 3410 until you reach a check-point and after passing the check-point we drove up the mountain. Just after the check-point there is a dam / reservoir on the left hand side and we could see white egrets but they were too far away proper ID.

After having past the dam there is a small farming village and some farm land were we spot the birds we had already seen a lot of at other places.
