Hainan Island - March 2024

The island of Hainan is situated at the most southerly tip off mainland China, being closer to the tropics, the island boasts some species that is difficult or absent from other parts of the country, as well as a few endemics. My last visit to Hainan was back in January of 2010, before birding really took off in China, we only visited Jianfengling, but got some great birds there including Hainan Leaf Warbler and brief views of Hainan Partridge. The last remaining endemic I needed is the Hainan Peacock-pheasant, a species that was as mystical as it was legendary, being an almost unreachable goal for most visiting birders. In 2023, some photos of the pheasant finally surfaced, turns out there was now a feeding station at Jian Feng Ling, making it possible for visiting birders to get this bird with relative ease.

Naturally, Kenneth and I wanted to add another peacock pheasant to our world list (who wouldn’t!), and started asking for availability back in January. Unfortunately, the hide was completely booked up, we were finally given a slot in March. We quickly booked a flight, together with Dennis we made our way to the island. Our short trip included two days at Danzhou, an area around 1.5 hours from Haikou. Here we plan to find a few owls, Blue-breasted Quail and wintering Spoon-billed Sandpiper. The second part of the trip will take us to Jianfengling, where we hope to see the Hainan Peacock-pheasant, as well as other forest birds found in the reserve.

Day 1:

We took a late afternoon flight to Haikou, the 1.5 hour flight arrived earlier than we expected, we took an E-Hired car to the meeting point for our first night excursion. Kenneth contacted Mr. Chen to organize our trip around Danzhou, he is a well known bird guide of that area. Unfortunately, he seems a very busy man, and didn’t reply messages very often, and he forgot that we didn’t have a hired car with us, therefore when we arrived we were notified that there were no transport for us! Luckily, he managed to call up a friend to help out. We arrived near a Rubber Tree plantation, where we met up with Mr. Chen, he was already taking 4 other clients with him, so we birded as one big group.

Our first stop was to look for Oriental Bay Owl, one of Kenneth’s main target, as he dipped this species on previous trips. It wasn’t a target of mine, but its a bird no birder can say no to! Mr. Chen led us to a small patch of bamboo forest near a village, where we heard the call almost immediately. After some searching we found our first individual, but it took off before any of us could get a good photo. Soon, we found another one, but this one preferred to stay in the cover. We only managed some record shots. Mr. Chen advised us not to stay, as he stated these birds are now in breeding, therefore he didn’t want to disturb them too much. Which left us with no good photo of this species, but certainly a situation we can understand. Around the same area we heard both Grey and Large-tailed Nightjars.

Oriental Bay Owl - not making it easy for us

We tried a few different locations for the Bay Owl and heard a few more calling but had little luck getting good views. By that time it was around mid-night, we opted to look for something else. The roadside by farm fields were good habitat for Barn Owls, and we successfully found one sitting on top of a surveillance camera. With that, it was nearly 1am, and we headed back to the hotel.

Barn Owl - under surveillance! 

Day 2:

A 8am start saw us up and ready, we waited downstairs for our driver, where we added Light-vented Bulbuls, the race here is hainanus, with darker head.

We met our driver and headed to the mudflats of Danzhou Bay. Mr. Chen was already there waiting for us, he brought out some wellies for each of us and off we went onto the mudflat. We immediately saw plenty of waders, mainly Siberian Sand Plovers. There were also a few Broad-billed Sandpipers, as well as common species like Eurasian Curlew, Whimbrel, Kentish Plovers, Red-necked Stints and Pacific Golden Plovers.

We kept scanning for Spoon-billed Sandpiper. It wasn't long before Mr. Chen stated he found one feeding on the mudflat! We slowly walked over and surely saw a lone bird feeding around the small pools on the mudflat. For the next 15 minutes or so, we enjoyed phenomenal close-up views of this critically endangered species, a mere 6m away from us, completely unbothered by our presence! Mr. Chen stated there are usually 2-3 birds that winters in the area, and they will soon be flying back to their breeding ground in the arctic tundra. It was such a privilege to see this species up close, and certainly a birding highlight that will be remembered for a whole lifetime!

Spoon-billed Sandpiper - incredible encounter!

After the Spoon-billed Sandpiper, we asked if there are any White-faced Plovers around. Mr. Chen certainly seems to think so and took us for a walk around the mudflats, we scanned through many plovers, mostly Kentish Plovers. Along the way we saw many Chinese Horseshoe Crabs, which are always interesting to see.

It took us a while but we finally tracked down one male assuming breeding plumage, while this species looks  superficially like Kentish Plovers (hence they remained “hidden” from birders for many years), better understanding of their morphological differences with them have given rise to more records of this species throughout coastal China and South East Asia. They are slightly larger billed, with thicker pinkish legs, and males show paler lores and ear coverts. Nearby we also found a female, although it remained much further away.

After this successful morning on the mudflat, we continued our efforts by car. Along the roadside we added a nice looking male Shikra, a species common around much of South East Asia, and also Hainan Island. There were plenty of Long-tailed Shrikes along the roadside as well. With that, we headed for lunch, and Mr. Chan left us in the afternoon to bird around the area on our own, he would join us again in the evening.

Our first stop after lunch was the farmlands around Huangyu Village, here we added some common farmland species, including a flock of Long-toed Stints. However, there was really nothing of too much interest for us, as all the species were commonly found in Hong Kong as well. We turned our attention to a few Ornate Sunbirds (recent split from Olive-backed Sunbird), while a species we sometimes get in Hong Kong, it is not one we see often at home.

There were not many birds at Lantian Village, the only bird of remote interest was a Cinnamon Bittern we flushed, and later perched out in the open briefly for a few photos.

Cinnamon Bittern - sneaky bird!

Our next stop was Xinyingzhen, here there were supposed to be Slaty-breasted Rail, of which I wanted to get a better photo, but that bird never appeared. We did however got some decent birds along the way, including a few Black-faced Spoonbills in the distant, it was interesting to see the Black-faced Spoonbills being very close to the oyster farm workers. We also added Striated Heron, a Black-capped Kingfisher and big flock of Red-billed Starling flew past. Along the mangroves we had a few more Ornate Sunbirds, plus a small flock of Scaly-breasted Munias. Since there was nothing much else we could add, we headed back to the hotel for some rest.

After dinner, we drove to a grassy area to meet up with Mr. Chen for the night excursion, he had 2 other guests from northern China with him. Hainan is the only place in China where you can find Blue-breasted Quail, making it a key target species for many Chinese birders who come here specifically to look for them, they are actually very common in much of South East Asia, although I've never been able to connect with any. With the aid of infrared cameras, it becomes easier to find these tough birds amongst the tall grass, Mr. Chen soon found a pair and we went over to have a look. Both the female and male were seen, at night they sit and don't run off, making them easier to see. We took some record shots and let them get back to sleep.

The grassland is also home to Barred Button Quail, where we also found 2 using the same technique. These were more awake and creeped around the grass. Despite some initial fumbling by the 2 other guests who were obviously too excited at the sight of these birds and bumped into Kenneth and I, everyone finally got good views when one stopped out in the open briefly.

My infrared camera also picked up on many smaller birds, mainly Richard's Pipits and Zitting Cisticolas, although I did find a Golden-headed Cisticola for Dennis which was a lifer for him.

Another main reason for birders to visit Danzhou area is for the Australasian Grass-Owl, which can be frequently found around the grassland area here. We found 2 during our outing, although photographing them flying in the dark proof challenging. And with that, we ended our night time search and headed back to the hotel at around mid-night.

Day 3:

I didn't feel too well that night, with a very upset stomach about something we ate that evening, which made me threw up 3 times! Once my body got whatever was making me unwell out of my system, I was feeling slightly better, and slept for a few hours. I didn't have too much time to rest however, as we arranged another driver to pick us up from the hotel for the next part of our journey. The driver was right on time and picked us up at the hotel lobby at 5am. I slept through most of the trip down towards Jianfengling, by the time we got to the park entrance it was 7:30am. Non-locals cannot prebook tickets online, which is hugely inconvenient, meaning we had to wait for the ticket office to open before we can enter the park. Fortunately, a helpful staff managed to get us tickets a bit earlier than usual and let us in. We arranged to meet the feeding station owner of the Hainan Peacock Pheasant that morning at 8am, who sent us the coordinates. Just when we thought everything was going smoothly, Kenneth saw that our driver was driving away from the said location! Turns out he thought we had to first go up to another area in the park! By that time, it was 7:50am, the thought of missing the Peacock Pheasant became real fear, and we rushed back towards the correct coordinates. We managed to get there at 8:20am despite having a very slow car ahead of us slowing us down, to our pleasant surprise the pheasant have yet to arrive. We all made our way up into the bird hide and the wait began!

The Hainan Peacock Pheasant, like all of the members of this group of birds, are exceptionally difficult to see in the wild. Just a few years ago, photos of wild birds of this species was almost non-existing! The owner of the hide obviously knew about these birds and managed to lure them out with some food, and now they can be seen here regularly. As soon as we sat down at the hide, we heard the call of the Hainan Peacock Pheasant in the forest, and in just about 10 minutes, a juvenile male slowly creeped out from the dense vegetation and came onto the feeding station. The blue spots on the back and tail were much smaller on this bird.

Not long after the first bird went back into the forest, another individual came out, this time an adult male! Although the left side of its tail was in moult, it was a brilliant bird to behold! After this bird, it was a long wait of nothing. The hide owner stated Hainan Partridges frequent this hide, we kept our eyes and ears opened but got nothing. We did however added many species by ear, including Red-headed Trogons, Ratchet-tailed Treepies, Puff-throated Bulbul, Chinese Barbet, Blue-throated Bee-eater and Large Scimitar-Babbler to name a few!

After a coupe of hours of not seeing anything, I took a nap after lunch, only to be nudged awake by Kenneth. Turns out it was a female with two chicks! This was quite an exciting observation of this rare species in the wild. By that time, we've been in the hide for 5 hours, and there was still no sign of any Hainan Partridge, the owner stated 3pm is a likely time they may arrive (If only they behave as we want to!), so more waiting it was...

It was well past 3pm, and getting quite dark, still no sign of the partridges! By 4:30pm, the two other photographers in the hide with us finally gave up and left the hide. Not long after they left, a Hainan Peacock Pheasant came onto the feeding station, this time an almost immaculate adult male!

The handsome male was just casually feeding, when it suddenly stopped, and started to ruffle up all its feathers. To our surprise, it started its courtship dance right in front of our very eyes! Tail spread truly in a 'peacock' fashion! It soon turned around, and sure enough there was a female nearby, as it came onto the feeding station as well with two chicks. The female was obviously not interested, but it didn't stop the male from showing off. It was an incredible experience to see the transformation of this male bird in front of our very eyes. We waited a bit longer afterwards for the partridge, but they never came. Despite dipping on the Hainan Partridge, I think seeing a Hainan Peacock Pheasant display was more than good enough to make up for the losses, and made our gruelling 9 hours wait in the bird hide worth it!

That evening, we had a walk along the road up towards Mingfenggu, hoping to find a few interesting herps. Unfortunately, the weather prevented us from doing anything more, as our driver did not want to drive too far in the heavy mist. We ended up finding just a few frogs, all were new to me of course. With that, we ended our day and rested up before our final day of birding at Jianfengling.

Day 4:

We got in contact with another hide owner near Mingfenggu within Jianfengling, who have another location for Hainan Partridge, he told us to go meet him at 6am in the morning first for a session at his lodge. Not knowing what to expect, we got there to find a rooftop full of moths! Turns out, he leave on a light at night to attract the moths, and in the morning, the birds will come and pick them off the trees and buildings. I myself who is a casual moth-er was of course very happy with this arrangement, and there were some very nice moths up there, if only I had more time to document more of them! There were a few Tussar Moths, all very impressive looking.

Assorted moths!

Actias ningpoana is of course a crowd favourite as always, they are absolutely gorgeous especially a fresh one like this! And there were a good selection of Hawk Moths as well.

There were hundreds and hundreds of moths around, most I did not have time to photograph, here are a few more interesting ones I don't think I have seen before.

Biston panterinaria

Ischyja albata

Euplocia membliaria

Finally, a wonderful looking Brahmaea hearseyi, a species that I have seen a few times now, but leave me in awe every single time. A moth I cannot get bored of!

As soon as day break, birds started coming in. First some common species, such as Mountain and Puff-throated Bulbuls, Grey-chinned and Scarlet Minivets, as well as numerous Bronzed Drongos.

A few Sultan Tits came in, these gorgeous birds while not a lifer for me, was a bird I haven't seen for quite some time! It was wonderful to refresh my memory of this incredible looking species. A few of them came right in to the rooftop to feed on the moths.

Although the highlight for me here was definitely numerous Yellow-billed Nuthatches that came around frequently, I've only had distant views of this species before here at Jianfengling and also in Vietnam, here we were getting eye-level views from the rooftop, and able to marvel at all the wonderful details of this species.

Yellow-billed Nuthatch

Other birds of interest were a few Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, the hainan endemic race johni have one of the biggest crest of this species. A few Ratchet-tailed Treepies also made an appearance, although mostly from treetops further away. A flock of Grey-headed Parrotbills came through and gave brief views in the open, while numerous Chinese Barbets were calling, but none showed well.

We went downstairs for a quick walk in the area, and added a few Dusky Fulvettas which showed brilliantly. A few Large Woodshrikes were present but remained very high up. I spotted a female Blue-and-White Flycatcher, and Asian Palm Swifts filled the morning sky. We had a few more Ratchet-tailed Treepies, this time slightly closer, but higher up against the sky, from this angle you can really appreciate the peculiar tail.

After breakfast, we were transferred to another feeding station, here we waited for the Hainan Partridge as well as Silver Pheasants. Things started off with a confiding Orange-headed Thrush, the Hainan race of Black-throated Laughingthrush was also seen. One of our target here was the Rufous-cheeked Laughingthrush, a species that is only found on Hainan, as well as parts of Vietnam and Laos, quite a few of these showed up with the Black-throated Laughingthrush.

We waited a little longer for any sign of the partridge or Silver Pheasant, but got nothing. The hide owner stated it is likely the partridge have just started breeding, and are not coming into the feeding stations (typical, and one I've experienced before with the Bulwer's Pheasant!). It was simply not our time to see that bird, so we made our peace with it and moved on. Along the way we had a few more Puff-throated Bulbuls and a pair of Red-headed Trogons, the male showed quite nicely for us, giving prolonged views.

Before we headed for lunch as we waited for our driver to come and pick us up, we added a few Streak-breasted Scimitar-Babblers, this is endemic race nigrostellatus, which looks quite different from the one we get in Hong Kong, with pale eyes and more heavy spots on the front, which resembles the Taiwan Scimitar-Babbler, they also sound quite different, perhaps a possible future split?

At lunch, we wasted little time and birded outside while we waited for the food to arrive, here we added Orange-bellied Leafbirds but was too far for photos, a Chinese Barbet perched out in the open was nice to see. There were quite a few Light-vented Bulbuls around, but none really allowed good photos. A pair of Fork-tailed Sunbirds were found feeding on a bottle brush bush, this is the nominate race of Fork-tailed Sunbird, and is endemic to Hainan, it differs from the rest being much darker overall with black back, they also sound very different to the ones we get in Hong Kong, having a much softer song.

After lunch, we spent an hour walking the boardwalk of Mingfenggu, the wooden boardwalk that I walked on back in 2010 is now slowly being replaced by metal ones, as the old wooden boardwalks have now almost disintegrated in the damp rainforest. The first and probably best bird of the afternoon was no doubt a pair of Eyebrowed Wren-Babblers, a species that is new to all three of us! It was extremely dark on the forest floor, I had to crank up to ISO 32000 to just get around 1/80 shutterspeed. I was surprised by how well my camera picked up on this bird and even picked up on it with animal eye tracking! We saw a couple of smaller birds but nothing of too much interest, our last bird was a Blue-bearded Bee-eater, which we initially heard and later flew out and perched for a few seconds before disappearing again.

By 2:30pm, we started our way down the mountain, birding along the way. However, mist and some rain came in, which definitely made birding very difficult, and photgraphing them almost impossible. Along the road we added a few very vocal Spot-necked Babblers, this very loud species was however not the easiest to photograph, as they skulk around in the thickets. Many White-bellied Erpornis were seen, a species that seems quite common on Hainan, amongst the bird waves we had up to two Hainan Leaf Warbler, one of our main targets, however the fog was simply too thick for us to get any photos, although all of us got good views.

Two more male Blue-and-White Flycatchers were added, as well as other common forest species such as Rufous-capped Babblers, Huet's Fulvettas and Blue-winged Minlas, as well as wintering species like Eastern Crowned, Two-barred and Yellow-browed Warblers. We heard quite a few Barred Cuckoo Dove along the way, and I finally caught sight of a few very far away.

Our final bird of the trip, was none other than a single male Silver Pheasant, which strolled through the thick undergrowth. With that, we headed towards Sanya, had a relaxing dinner near the airport, and flew back on a late evening plane that landed in Hong Kong at around 11:30pm.

Silver Pheasant - race whiteheadi

All in all, I would say it was a fairly successful trip, we recorded 141 species in just what is affectively 3 birding days. Being just over an hour flight from Hong Kong, Hainan really is a great destination for a short trip, with tons of interesting birds and wildlife. The wide range of habitats also allowed us to get quite a good list of birds in such a short amount of time. Despite missing on a few key targets, we bagged our most wanted bird, which will certainly allow us to spend a bit more time exploring the forest on our next visit in the future. However, I must say that travelling in China now as a non-local resident can be a bit troublesome, as we cannot setup WeChat Pay without a local bank account, payment in many places are quite difficult, as some shops don't like to be paid with cash nowadays. Communication with the hide owners and guides also seems to have led to some confusion and misunderstanding, as they don't always respond quickly, and questions were often left unanswered, so at times it was a bit frustrating. But, all in all it was still a pleasant experience. Much thanks to Kenneth for organizing the trip, and for the great company from both him and Dennis to make it a very enjoyable trip, hopefully we will able to return again and finish off photographing the other two 'easier' endemic species!
