Winter birds in Bangkok

Phutthamonthon park is 20 kilometers from home in Bangkok. That's why I and my sweetie were there quite often.

Winter time in Thailand

Winter in Thailand is usually warmer than any places elsewhere, that's why many Kingfishers do come here during this time of year. These harlequins make birding more interesting. Shots taken in Phutthamonthon. More acquainted to P600, it's image quality quite decent, comparable to SX50HS.

Brown Shrike at home

About to go birding, surprisingly from my backyard (Khet Bangkok Noi) a Brown Shrike นกอีเสือสีน้ำตาล was sitting there. My wife said I got up late again so the bird just came to call me up. A crop from P600's 16 megapixels is decent, isn't it?

Ferruginous Flycatcher

About to leave Phutthamonthon at 3 pm when I spotted this flycatcher in the bamboo garden. Some shots revealed that it's my new find, a Ferruginous Flycatcher นกจับแมลงสีน้ำตาลแดง. Some  birders with big gears also stopped by as I gestured. These shots were taken on the next day. A small crest is seen, so it is presumably male.

It's quite bright at noon. Migrants were calling all the ways around.
