2005 [October] - Steve BarrettReport
I visited Thailand, Laos and Cambodia in October 2005. Bird-watching was a secondary part of the visit but in the absence of trip reports for Laos the following short report gives a taste of the birds which you can, or should I say can’t, see in this beautiful country. The country is well worth a visit to see the sights but abundant wild life is not a feature. I have not given any description of the birds seen in north Thailand or Cambodia since there are numbers of reports for these areas but have added short notes for the island of Ko Samet 200km south of Bangkok since there seem to be no reports for this holiday spot...
2009 [December] - Stijn De WinReport
A first quality species to add to the list came as a Red-vented Barbet that was perched for about 20 min. allowing for excellent looks. Actually, after this first find, another 2 birds were recorded at different spots in the Na Hin area which might prove that it’s fairly common at Na Hin, yet inconspicuous. (as overlooked on previous trips)...
2012 [October] - Graham TalbotReport PDF
...We drove up to the start of the weather station trail at KM48 where we had our packed breakfast whilst playing the Eared Pitta tape but no response though it was quite windy. Today was our final attempt at getting a view of the Red-collared Pecker but as we trudged up the trail I don’t think deep down we were very hopeful. We had decided today to only play the tape in the open forest just past the weather station as the trail started to descend. This we did but we had no response at all. We continued on and reached the end of the trail at the valley floor and from here we explored two less well-defined trails, one contouring the slope and one leading down by a dry riverbed, both trails extended for about 500m before becoming very obscure...
2013 [March] - Craig Robson - Cambodia & LaosReport PDF
...Fine sunny weather and generally very smooth-running logistics enabled us to notch-up a large total of 344 species. Highlights included amazing views of Chestnut-headed Partridge, Milky Stork and Greater Adjutant at one of the largest remaining ‘large waterbird’ breeding colonies in Asia, multiple encounters with White-shouldered and Giant Ibises, White-rumped Pygmy-falcon, at least 11 Bengal Floricans (with some males displaying), flocks of Sarus Cranes, Asian Dowitcher, a scoped Pale-capped Pigeon, nine species of owl including Spot-bellied Eagle-owl and Spotted and Brown Wood-owls, Black-headed and Heart-spotted Woodpeckers, Blue Pitta, Asian Golden Weaver, Mekong Wagtail, a vagrant Chestnut-cheeked Starling, the limestone-loving Bare- faced Bulbul and Sooty Babbler, and a close encounter with the rare Manchurian Reed-warbler. Mammals were also prominent, with Lao and Indochinese Silvered Langurs, Irrawaddy Dolphin and Eld’s Deer....
2013 [March] - Frank Lambert - Cambodia & LaosReport PDF
...Amazingly our first bird was a pair of Bare-faced Bulbuls – the main reason we had visited this area - that miraculously appeared in a fruiting tree beside the road and fed at very close range, apparently unaffected by the huge heavy traffic. The birds were later regularly seen perched on the limestone karst in this area and we probably saw at least six individuals...
