Chiang Dao Birding Trip Report pt.2
Adriaan & Sytske Dijksen
18 Nov - 23 Nov 2002

The other 2 days we were birding near Malee’s: the monastery, the checkpoint and we did, parts of, the Nature, Gulley and Jungle Trail. We did not have a car so we did everything by foot.
As us had been told before the birding in november was ‘rather slow’. We did see only a part of all the species mentioned in several tripreports on the net. For example: no Pitta’s (a French couple heard Rusty-naped), no Broadbills and Laughing-Thrushes only heard ( we did not use a tape to attract birds). But as we are not only interested in ticking as much species as possible, but enjoy all facets of nature, we had a very good time. Despite the rain on the first morning the weather was nice: sunny with some clouds and early-morning fog, and warm.
Birdactivity ended rapidly after about 11.00 a.m and started again but at a much lower level only about one hour before sunset. We can imagazine that in early spring (February) the birds are indeed more active and a little bit easier to find.
