Drongo Cuckoo นกคัคคูแซงแซว

Also in Phutthamonthon today is a black bird identified by Mr.S-1 from BCST as Drongo Cuckoo. My new find.

Asian Emerald Cuckoo

It's quite cool in Phutthamonthon (26 Celsius in the afternoon) with migrants hovering here and there. A small green bird with bright head perched on a branch. A few shots revealed that it is a female Asian Emerald Cuckoo. My new find.

Never end

Today Bangkok is really cooled. My house electricity bill come today at 2/3 of average. I'm still confused with the LBJ (little brown job). These birds were found through out many years in Phutthamonthon. Yes I'm a new birder. Give me some advise, anyone please.
