Bird Watching Program << Click Here >>
    
     Bird watching in Thailand may be a new experience for some people. Many birds in the forest are shy and difficult to observe. Walking slowly along roadsides in the forest may be the best start. Stopping at flowering trees or fruiting trees such as figs (Ficus spp.) will yield lots of good nectar-feeding or frugiferous birds including green pigeons, barbets, leafbirds, sunbirds, and flowerpeckers. Many sounds in forest may draw your attention. Look in the direction from which the sound comes and try to find the owner of that sound. Study of tapes of tapes of birds sounds before you go birding is suggested. Once you have some familiarity with the forest environment, walking slowly and quietly on forest trails will yield better results for ground feeders such as pheasants, partridges and pitas, and other shy birds such as trogons and babblers. Walking on forest trails especially in the wet season, may cause some problems from mosquitoes and land leeches. Insect repellents which contain diethyl-meta-toluamide work well to repel both leeches or other insects. Please not that dressing with bright colors which contrast with forest background may cause some problems of finding birds and other mammals. Early in the morning and late afternoon are the best time to watch birds in the forest of Thailand.
