Sooty-headed Bulbul, Asian-barred Owlet and Brown-throated Sunbird

Sooty-headed Bulbul
Monday afternoon/evening we visited some friends at Sri Prachan just 20 kilometers north of Suphanburi, whilst enjoying a beer and some great Thai food, I was surprised how common Sooty-headed Bulbuls were around the area, though just 20 kilometers away I have never seen this species around Suphanburi or the Bangkok basin their range not reaching this area. The habitat at Sri Prachan looks broadly similar but perhaps a little drier with more scrub. Another species common at Sri Prachan but absent from Suphanburi is Asian-barred Owlet with one obliging individual seen well and several more calling. Also seen were two Brown-throated Sunbird which should also occur at Suphanburi but I have yet to record it here.
