Northern Thailand - February 2019 : Part 5

Day 9 - Doi Inthanon to Chiang Mai

Our last day of birding, Ball decided to take us to the Blossom-headed Parakeet roost in the morning. There is a tower built for the purpose of looking at the Parakeets at the back of a residential area overlooking the forest. When we arrived and climbed up the tower, no Parakeets were insight. Only a few Greater Racket-tailed Drongos and a single Racket-tailed Treepie.

Although it wasn't long until a few flew in and landed on a flowering tree. The views weren't exactly great and they were quite far, but it's always nice to see wild Parakeets. The Blossom-headed Parakeet like many other parrots are on a decreasing trend, threatened by habitat loss and illegal pet trade, they are now listed as near threatened. We enjoyed fairly decent views on and off in the next half hour or so.

The platform yielded other birds as well, although most were too far for any photographs to be taken. A few Streak-eared Bulbuls and Golden-fronted Leafbirds perched at eye-level was quite nice. We also added Himalayan Swiftlets.

We went to a local noodle place for breakfast, the balcony there yielded a lifer for me in form of two Ashy Bulbuls! A species I've tried at various locations with little success! Who knew my first encounter would be over a bowl of noodles? A very vocal Hill Prinia also showed up.

After breakfast, Ball took us to a White-capped Redstart stakeout by the stream. A male Plumbeous Redstart was present, not surprising in such suitable habitats.

It wasn't long before a White-capped Redstart hopped out in front of us, jumping from boulder to boulder. This species is fairly common throughout it's range, including China. Hong Kong unfortunately sits just south of it's natural range, and the few records so far had all been rejected as ex-captive birds, although I am pretty sure wild individuals are fully capable of finding their way to Hong Kong, it's just a matter of time...

Since we had gotten most of our main targets, I wanted to try for the Black-backed Forktail which is sometimes seen along the stream at KM13. We drove there and walked along a footpath by the stream. Other than a flock of White-crested Laughingthrush and a Greater Yellownape we added very little in the forest here.

Dry Dipterocarp Forest

We came out to a clearing, here we saw two Collared Falconets hawking for insects, mainly dragonflies and butterflies. A Shikra also flew over our heads. The best find here was probably a Rufous-winged Buzzard, although we failed to relocate it after trying to get closer.

We scanned the river on the bridge one last time but came up empty with the Forktail, not surprising as we saw a few tourist playing by the stream.

From there we drove back towards Chiang Mai city, Ball had one last trick up his sleeve and took us to the Medicinal Plant Garden at Chiang Mai University before our departure. Upon arrival we saw a small group of very noisy White-crested Laughingthrush, they were first spotted on a balcony and look to be attracted by their own reflection, they kept trying to fight their own reflection...birds can be a bit dumb sometimes, but that gave us a great opportunity to observe them, and as soon as they noticed us they went back to being their usual self and foraged on the ground.

The surrounding gardens were surprisingly birdy, with Grey-headed Canary Flycatcher and White-rumped Shama both showing up. The White-rumped Shama caught a small toad at one point.

A few extremely photogenic Greater Racket-tailed Drongos posed nicely on a low branch. While a male Olive-backed Sunbird was gleaning insects off leaves.

The pièce de résistance of the park was however a pair of Brown Boobooks! They did not disappoint and provided incredibly lovely views as they eyed us and other joggers from above. Brown Boobook was once considered conspecific with Northern Boobooks, but had since been split. Either way, both species are fun to look at and who doesn't like a grumpy looking owl?

Brown Boobook - fabulous birds before heading back to Hong Kong!

We later found another grumpy owl in form of an Asian Barred Owlet, unlike the Brown Boobook this one was not quite so lucky, as it was constantly chased by a few Red-whiskered Bulbul...Two species of owls in one small park was certainly quite impressive. And my final bird at the park was none other than the fabulous Green-billed Malkoha!

After a very successful run at the park, we enjoyed an amazing lunch at the Galae Restaurant, a lovely place no more than 10 minutes drive from the university. After lunch Ball took us to a local market to get some souvenirs, and we arrived at the airport slightly early so Ball can take some well deserved rest, although he told us he got an early start the next morning for another tour. Birding never stops!

Galae Restaurant

Overall, I would rate our trip as very successful. We recorded over 260 species, which is quite a lot considering we only sampled a small proportion of the north. We connected with nearly all of our main targets, I had over 50 lifers, and many of them had been long time dream birds of mine! Bird of the trip is a difficult choice between the Himalayan Cutia and Hodgson's Frogmouth, but I think the Himalayan Cutia gets the prize as you can't go looking for nesting birds like the Frogmouth, making it a more difficult bird in general.

Thailand is also very charming, with wonderful friendly people everywhere and great food in nearly every restaurant we went! It is generally a very tourist friendly country, no wonder it is so popular amongst first time South East Asian travellers. Weather was excellent throughout, being the dry season that is expected, temperature was also quite comfortable throughout our trip, although I would advice against visiting Thailand in March and April as it is probably the hottest time of the year for them and Chiang Mai can reach over 40°C.

If anyone is heading to Northern Thailand, I highly recommend our guide Atiwich Ball, he was utmost excellent and know the birds in this region quite well, without him we sure would have dipped on many target species! He also took care of our every need and was extremely helpful. You can contact him through his facebook of the same name.
