Amur Falcon

Doi Chiang Dao
Sunday and Monday I was busy doing mostly non birding things around Chiang Dao, however my bins were never very far away and I did manage to see a number of species either in the garden or over it. On Monday a male Amur Falcon headed high north over the garden, followed a little later by a Peregrine. A pair of Blue-bearded Bee-eater were present in trees by the entrance road into the resort and in scrub at the opposite end of the resort there was a splendid adult male Siberian Blue Robin. Monday morning a flock of a dozen Thick-billed Green Pigeon zipped over and in the evening Spot-billed Eagle Owl, Collared and Mountain Scops Owl were heard.
