Dusky Broadbill

With two recent sightings of Banded Kingfisher from the nature trail/fence trail, a species which has so far eluded me at Chiang Dao, yesterday morning I headed back into the forest for much of the day. No Kingfisher but major surprise in the form of 3 Dusky Broadbill along the fence trail, one of only a handful of sightings from the area. Lots of other birds recorded with a similar selection of species to previous visit plus a few additions with 2 Grey-capped Pygmy, 1 Bamboo and a Rufous Woodpecker, White-browed Piculet, 5 Greater Yellownape, 2 Red-headed Trogon, 3 Green Magpie, 2 Maroon Oriole, Tickell's Blue Flycatcher, 2 Asian Stubtail, 2 Sulphur-breasted Warbler, 6 Greater Necklaced and 2 Black-throated Laughingthrush, 2 White-browed Scimiter Babbler, Eye-browed Wren Babbler and a Purple-naped Sunbird.

This morning 17 Large Woodshrike through the garden and a Violet Cuckoo over.
