Birding Tour Thailand: Central and Northern Thailand 2018



This three-week Birding Tour Thailand adventure commences in Bangkok, before heading south to the magnificent Kaeng Krachan National Park, home to numerous pittas, broadbills, hornbills, and woodpeckers. We spend time birding the different altitudes within the park, each home to a different set of birds, before we move across to the coast, where we focus our attention on a vast array of shorebirds/waders, including the incredible Spoon-billed Sandpiper. Our next stop is the world-famous Khao Yai National Park, where we will look for Siamese Fireback and Silver Pheasant, along with many other targets, like Great Hornbill.

After our time in central Thailand we take a short flight to the mountains of northern Thailand, flying into Chiang Mai. While in the north we will visit Doi Inthanon National Park, the highest mountain in Thailand and home to a number of birds found nowhere else in the country. We will spend a few days birding across the different altitudes here before moving down to an area of lowland forest, home to the giant Great Slaty Woodpecker. The coming week will see us visit several different mountain ranges, where we will look for overwintering Chinese migrants as well as some exciting resident species like Mrs. Hume’s Pheasant and Himalayan Cutia. We will also spend time at the huge Chiang Saen Lake and adjacent farmland with a large Pied Harrier roost and will keep an eye out for the very rare Baer’s Pochard.

The tour visits some very impressive natural and manmade scenery, samples some delicious Thai cuisine, and should result in a trip list of around 450 species, with usually a rarity or two thrown in. Several of the sites visited offer very good photographic opportunities.

What our clients say

We spent three weeks with Andy in Thailand and enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Andy worked so hard to find the birds, and get us on them.  He was very patient and took the time we needed. He knew all the best places to go, knew what birds would be expected, identified them in an instant  and still managed to find some pretty good rarities along with the “known birds”, Himalayan Cutia anyone? And we spent literally hours getting great looks at Spoon-billed Sandpiper.  Andy got us very close without disturbing the birds or any other birders.  It was a highlight of the trip.  We are hoping to see Andy in York later this year for a days birding on his home patch!
