We enjoyed another very productive and fun post-tour extension to Peninsular Thailand after the conclusion of our main tour, and we enjoyed very good weather throughout. We packed in a lot of places and and a bunch of birds, adding nearly 75 species to our total Thai list, including such stars as the fabled Nicobar Pigeon and both Green and Pied imperial-pigeons on the Similans, stunning White-crowned Hornbill, Wallace's Hawk-Eagle, and Rufous-collared Kingfisher at Krung Ching, the vibrant Green Broadbill, a breathtaking white male Asian Paradise-Flycatcher, and the cryptic Gould's Frogmouth at Khao Nor Chuchi (KNC), the local Brown-winged Kingfisher at Krabi, and gem-like Black-and-red Broadbill and Mangrove Pitta at Phang Nga. We loaded up on new bulbuls, barbets, and babblers as well at most of our stops, among many others as well.

Thanks again to Wat and crew for making us all so comfortable and keeping us well-fed, and to all of you for coming along for the ride through the Peninsula with me. It was a blast! See you on the next tour!


One of the following keys may be shown in brackets for individual species as appropriate: * = heard only, I = introduced, E = endemic, N = nesting, a = austral migrant, b = boreal migrant

Ardeidae (Herons, Egrets, and Bitterns)
GREAT EGRET (Ardea alba)
LITTLE EGRET (Egretta garzetta)
PACIFIC REEF-HERON (Egretta sacra) – We saw that one dark-morph bird sticking its head up over the sandbar at Pakarang.
CATTLE EGRET (ASIAN) (Bubulcus ibis coromandus)
CHINESE POND-HERON (Ardeola bacchus)
STRIATED HERON (Butorides striata)
Accipitridae (Hawks, Eagles, and Kites)
ORIENTAL HONEY-BUZZARD (Pernis ptilorhynchus) – It seemed like the skies were full of these at Krung Ching, especially on our last morning there. They sure can look a lot like a hawk-eagle!
JERDON'S BAZA (Aviceda jerdoni) – A few of us saw this one flying away from the van as we exited Ton Chongfa Waterfall on our last morning.
BLACK BAZA (Aviceda leuphotes) – A small flock of these beautiful raptors along the entrance road into Krung Ching was a much-anticipated sighting by the group!
CRESTED SERPENT-EAGLE (Spilornis cheela)

Nicobar Pigeon on the Similans (Photo by guide Dave Stejskal)

BLYTH'S HAWK-EAGLE (Nisaetus alboniger) – Some of us actually did see a raptor overhead at Krung Ching that wasn't a honey-buzzard! Count those exposed primary tips carefully...
WALLACE'S HAWK-EAGLE (Nisaetus nanus) – We all saw this beautiful adult perched in the scope from the helipad. I wish that it could have been a little closer.
BRAHMINY KITE (Haliastur indus)
WHITE-BELLIED SEA-EAGLE (Haliaeetus leucogaster) – A few nice looks at this marine eagle with the grossly exaggerated dihedral.
Rallidae (Rails, Gallinules, and Coots)
WHITE-BREASTED WATERHEN (Amaurornis phoenicurus) – It was kinda neat to see these sneaking around through the forest undergrowth on the island.
WATERCOCK (Gallicrex cinerea) – If you were quick to the scope, you got to see this big rail bathing in the river near Takua Pa.
Charadriidae (Plovers and Lapwings)
BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER (Pluvialis squatarola)
RIVER LAPWING (Vanellus duvaucelii) – A quick check from the bridge revealed three species of lapwings just downstream, including this handsome bird.
GRAY-HEADED LAPWING (Vanellus cinereus) – Pretty far south for this one!
RED-WATTLED LAPWING (Vanellus indicus atronuchalis)
LESSER SAND-PLOVER (Charadrius mongolus)
GREATER SAND-PLOVER (Charadrius leschenaultii) – Some of us got a look in the scope at a gorgeous bird in full breeding plumage at Pakarang after our island boat trip.
Scolopacidae (Sandpipers and Allies)
TEREK SANDPIPER (Xenus cinereus) – There were plenty of these distinctive shorebirds to go around at Pakarang during our short visit there.
COMMON SANDPIPER (Actitis hypoleucos)
GRAY-TAILED TATTLER (Tringa brevipes) – A single bird made a late appearance to the mudflats at Pakarang.
WHIMBREL (SIBERIAN) (Numenius phaeopus variegatus) – The only Whimbrels of the entire trip were at Pakarang.
BAR-TAILED GODWIT (Limosa lapponica) – Good scope looks at a few birds at Pakarang.
RUDDY TURNSTONE (Arenaria interpres)
RED-NECKED STINT (Calidris ruficollis)
SANDERLING (Calidris alba)
Laridae (Gulls, Terns, and Skimmers)
COMMON TERN (Sterna hirundo) – Several on the boat ride.
Columbidae (Pigeons and Doves)
ROCK PIGEON (Columba livia) [I]
SPOTTED DOVE (Streptopelia chinensis)
EMERALD DOVE (Chalcophaps indica)
ZEBRA DOVE (Geopelia striata) – We finally got one for the group on our way to the Krabi airport on the last day.
NICOBAR PIGEON (Caloenas nicobarica) – YESSSS!!!! No sooner had we landed on the island and put our shoes back on, one of these strange pigeons was seen walking around the buildings on this busy island. I'm glad we got there when we did because the pigeons seemed to disappear after a while. Mission accomplished!
THICK-BILLED PIGEON (Treron curvirostra)
GREEN IMPERIAL-PIGEON (Ducula aenea) – The Nicobar wasn't the only pigeon that we were after on the island, and these next two were spotted soon after we had our fill of the Nicobar.
PIED IMPERIAL-PIGEON (Ducula bicolor) – That pale yellow isn't something that you see illustrated in any of the field guides. Gorgeous!
Cuculidae (Cuckoos)
BANDED BAY CUCKOO (Cacomantis sonneratii) [*]
PLAINTIVE CUCKOO (Cacomantis merulinus) [*]
VIOLET CUCKOO (Chrysococcyx xanthorhynchus)
FORK-TAILED DRONGO-CUCKOO (Surniculus dicruroides) – I still haven't figured out yet which of these two drongo-cuckoos is more common here. Neither was very common this year, however!
ASIAN KOEL (Eudynamys scolopaceus) – There are lots of these on the Similans - and not many hosts to parasitize.
BLACK-BELLIED MALKOHA (Phaenicophaeus diardi) – We had a couple of these at Krung Ching along the road. They really can be difficult to separate from the larger Green-billed Malkoha.
RAFFLES'S MALKOHA (Phaenicophaeus chlorophaeus) – This one seems to be a lot more vocal than his larger congeners and maybe a bit more responsive. The only malkoha that's rusty above.
RED-BILLED MALKOHA (Phaenicophaeus javanicus) – Some glimpsed this red-billed bird in the canopy, but he soon disappeared from view.
CHESTNUT-BREASTED MALKOHA (Phaenicophaeus curvirostris) – I've never seen a malkoha nest before, so it was great to discover one still under construction! The odd thing was that one of the birds sat on the nest the entire time (incubating?) and took nesting material that was passed to it by its mate, carefully placing it into the nest structure without getting off of the nest! [N]
GREATER COUCAL (Centropus sinensis)
Strigidae (Owls)
BROWN BOOBOOK (Ninox scutulata) – As we enjoyed the White-crowned Hornbills heading off to roost, a couple of these came in to the roadside trees and starting calling and catching big flying insects. Pretty cool!
Podargidae (Frogmouths)
GOULD'S FROGMOUTH (Batrachostomus stellatus) – Clearly, the nightbird highlight of this year's extension was this beautiful frogmouth found by Yotin's assistant, Nok, at KNC.
Caprimulgidae (Nightjars and Allies)
LARGE-TAILED NIGHTJAR (Caprimulgus macrurus) [*]
Apodidae (Swifts)
SILVER-RUMPED NEEDLETAIL (Rhaphidura leucopygialis) – Several of these distinctive swifts were spotted at Ton Chongfa Waterfall near Khao Lak on our final morning together.

Mangrove Pitta (Photo by participant Bill Fraser)

BROWN-BACKED NEEDLETAIL (Hirundapus giganteus) – It wasn't a great look, but there was really no mistaking these big swifts with that distinctive shape flying late in the afternoon at Krung Ching.
GERMAIN'S SWIFTLET (Aerodramus germani) – I suspect that there's more than one species of swiftlet here at Krung Ching - not just this one.
COOK'S SWIFT (Apus cooki) – The numbers of these that were flying above the distant ridge at Ton Chongfa Waterfall must have been in the 1000's!
ASIAN PALM-SWIFT (Cypsiurus balasiensis)
Hemiprocnidae (Treeswifts)
GRAY-RUMPED TREESWIFT (Hemiprocne longipennis) – Decent looks on the last day at Ton Chongfa.
WHISKERED TREESWIFT (Hemiprocne comata) – We spotted one of these gorgeous treeswifts perched on some bare twigs against the skyline at our turn around point at Ton Chongfa Waterfall. The scope views were terrific!
Trogonidae (Trogons)
ORANGE-BREASTED TROGON (Harpactes oreskios) – Nicely at Krung Ching, but it was the only trogon that we detected there this year.
Alcedinidae (Kingfishers)
BANDED KINGFISHER (Lacedo pulchella) – It got too dark on us to continue the search. [*]
BROWN-WINGED KINGFISHER (Pelargopsis amauroptera) – One of the prizes of a visit to Krabi is this huge kingfisher that's so fond of the many mangroves there. As the sun started to go down, these big guys came out of the mangroves to the river's edge, giving us all fine looks from the boat.
BLACK-CAPPED KINGFISHER (Halcyon pileata) – We had a few of these in flight in the Krabi mangroves, too.
COLLARED KINGFISHER (Todiramphus chloris)
RUFOUS-COLLARED KINGFISHER (Actenoides concretus) – one of the best finds at Krung Ching this year was this fantastic forest kingfisher, which obliged us with many minutes of unobstructed viewing. Some of my favorite birds in S.E. Asia are in this kingfisher genus.
Meropidae (Bee-eaters)
RED-BEARDED BEE-EATER (Nyctyornis amictus) – We could not have asked for a better encounter with this weird and beautiful bird along the Krung Ching entrance road. I wonder if they'll nest there again next year?
Coraciidae (Rollers)
INDIAN ROLLER (Coracias benghalensis)
DOLLARBIRD (Eurystomus orientalis)
Bucerotidae (Hornbills)
WHITE-CROWNED HORNBILL (Aceros comatus) – One of the toughest of the S.E. Asian hornbills is this bizarre bird and we ran into upwards of a dozen of them late in the afternoon as they were presumably headed off to some unknown roost site. Fantastic!!
Megalaimidae (Asian Barbets)
SOOTY BARBET (Calorhamphus hayii hayii) – Brown Barbet was just split into two species, with this one being found in the Malay Peninsula and Sumatra and the other being found only in Borneo.
COPPERSMITH BARBET (Psilopogon haemacephalus) [*]
BLUE-EARED BARBET (Psilopogon duvaucelii)
RED-THROATED BARBET (Psilopogon mystacophanos) – We heard lots of these barbets, especially at Krung Ching, but all we found was one rather dull-looking female.
GOLD-WHISKERED BARBET (Psilopogon chrysopogon) – We had some great looks of a perched bird on that final morning at Krung Ching.
Picidae (Woodpeckers)
BANDED WOODPECKER (Picus miniaceus) – A trio of these ornate woodpeckers put on quite a show for us along the entrance road at Krung Ching.
BUFF-RUMPED WOODPECKER (Meiglyptes tristis)
MAROON WOODPECKER (Blythipicus rubiginosus) – Some may have gotten a clean look at this one, but it was really tough to try to get it to cooperate for us a Krung Ching.
GRAY-AND-BUFF WOODPECKER (Hemicircus concretus) – Perhaps seen well by a few of us at Krung Ching.
Falconidae (Falcons and Caracaras)
BLACK-THIGHED FALCONET (Microhierax fringillarius) – Not as close as our Kaeng Krachan birds, but still nice to see!
Calyptomenidae (African and Green Broadbills)
GREEN BROADBILL (Calyptomena viridis) – We were lucky to find such a cooperative male at KNC as we walked the trails there. Nice looks!
Eurylaimidae (Asian and Grauer's Broadbills)
BLACK-AND-RED BROADBILL (Cymbirhynchus macrorhynchos) – Almost our last bird of the trip, we spotted a couple of these in the mangroves as we were scanning for the singing Mangrove Pitta nearby. It turned out to be a pretty good trip, overall, for broadbills!
BANDED BROADBILL (Eurylaimus javanicus) [*]
BLACK-AND-YELLOW BROADBILL (Eurylaimus ochromalus) [*]
Pittidae (Pittas)
MALAYAN BANDED-PITTA (Hydrornis irena) – Despite some significant time in the blind, this one was a no-show this year. [*]
MANGROVE PITTA (Pitta megarhyncha) – YESSSS!!!! This pretty much was our last bird of the trip in the mangroves near Phang Nga. We had a near miss at Krabi, and we whiffed entirely earlier at Phang Nga, so this one was a welcome sighting indeed!
Acanthizidae (Thornbills and Allies)
GOLDEN-BELLIED GERYGONE (Gerygone sulphurea) [*]
Vangidae (Vangas, Helmetshrikes, and Allies)
LARGE WOODSHRIKE (Tephrodornis gularis)
RUFOUS-WINGED PHILENTOMA (Philentoma pyrhoptera) – A pair of these along the Krung Ching trail was a new bird for most.
Aegithinidae (Ioras)
COMMON IORA (Aegithina tiphia) [*]
GREEN IORA (Aegithina viridissima) – There were quite a few of these calling in the canopy, but seeing them was another matter. Finally, we did catch up along the Krung Ching entrance road.
GREAT IORA (Aegithina lafresnayei)
Campephagidae (Cuckooshrikes)
SCARLET MINIVET (Pericrocotus speciosus)
ASHY MINIVET (Pericrocotus divaricatus)
BROWN-RUMPED MINIVET (Pericrocotus cantonensis)
LESSER CUCKOOSHRIKE (Lalage fimbriata) – Most, if not all, got a look at this small cuckooshrike working in the canopy along the Krung Ching entrance road.
Laniidae (Shrikes)
BROWN SHRIKE (Lanius cristatus)
Vireonidae (Vireos, Shrike-Babblers, and Erpornis)
WHITE-BELLIED ERPORNIS (Erpornis zantholeuca) [*]
Oriolidae (Old World Orioles)
DARK-THROATED ORIOLE (Oriolus xanthonotus) – A very common voice at the Krung Ching forest, and we actually had some very good looks of a couple of males in the canopy.
Dicruridae (Drongos)
BLACK DRONGO (Dicrurus macrocercus)
CROW-BILLED DRONGO (Dicrurus annectans) – We heard a few of these wintering drongos at Krung Ching and KNC, but didn't catch sight of one until the last day in the mangroves at Phang Nga.
BRONZED DRONGO (Dicrurus aeneus)
Monarchidae (Monarch Flycatchers)
BLACK-NAPED MONARCH (Hypothymis azurea) – Maybe our best looks of the entire trip were had at Krung Ching.
ASIAN PARADISE-FLYCATCHER (Terpsiphone paradisi) – We saw a few of these, but nothing like the all-white male along the trails at KNC! What a knock-out!
Corvidae (Crows, Jays, and Magpies)
LARGE-BILLED CROW (LARGE-BILLED) (Corvus macrorhynchos macrorhynchos)
Hirundinidae (Swallows)
BARN SWALLOW (Hirundo rustica)
PACIFIC SWALLOW (Hirundo tahitica javanica) – The common coastal swallow here.
RUFOUS-BELLIED SWALLOW (Cecropis badia) – This one is a fairly recent split from the Striated Swallow and it's restricted to the Malay Peninsula. Great views at Krabi!
Paridae (Tits, Chickadees, and Titmice)
SULTAN TIT (Melanochlora sultanea) [*]
Pycnonotidae (Bulbuls)
PUFF-BACKED BULBUL (Pycnonotus eutilotus) – We saw it fly overhead, but that's about it. [*]
BLACK-HEADED BULBUL (Pycnonotus atriceps)

Gould's Frogmouth (Photo by guide Dave Stejskal)

BLACK-CRESTED BULBUL (Pycnonotus flaviventris)
GRAY-BELLIED BULBUL (Pycnonotus cyaniventris) – This was our best new bulbul of the trip, and it came on the last day at Ton Chongfa Waterfall.
YELLOW-VENTED BULBUL (Pycnonotus goiavier)
OLIVE-WINGED BULBUL (Pycnonotus plumosus) – Quite similar to the Streak-eared, but with a red eye and that big greenish patch on the wing.
STREAK-EARED BULBUL (Pycnonotus blanfordi)
CREAM-VENTED BULBUL (Pycnonotus simplex) – This one is easy to i.d. here since all of the birds on the Peninsula have white eyes.
RED-EYED BULBUL (Pycnonotus brunneus) – This was likely the most common and widespread of the new bulbuls that we recorded on this extension.
SPECTACLED BULBUL (Pycnonotus erythropthalmos) – Smaller than Red-eyed with a different call and a thin yellow eye-ring around a red eye.
HAIRY-BACKED BULBUL (Tricholestes criniger) – This forest bulbul is unlike any other in the region. Great views at Krung Ching.
OCHRACEOUS BULBUL (Alophoixus ochraceus)
GRAY-CHEEKED BULBUL (Alophoixus bres) – Maybe glimpsed by someone? [*]
YELLOW-BELLIED BULBUL (Alophoixus phaeocephalus) – Pretty shy for a bulbul, we ended up getting this one pretty well along the trails at KNC.
BUFF-VENTED BULBUL (Iole olivacea)
Cettiidae (Bush-Warblers and Allies)
YELLOW-BELLIED WARBLER (Abroscopus superciliaris) – Again in the bamboo at Krung Ching.
Phylloscopidae (Leaf-Warblers)
YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER (Phylloscopus inornatus) [*]
PALE-LEGGED LEAF WARBLER (Phylloscopus tenellipes) – Some of the birds that we heard are undoubtedly the newly described Sakhalin Leaf Warbler, but I'm not convinced yet that you can i.d. them in the field. [*]
EASTERN CROWNED LEAF WARBLER (Phylloscopus coronatus) – Much more common down here in winter than they are at Kaeng Krachan NP to the north.
Cisticolidae (Cisticolas and Allies)
DARK-NECKED TAILORBIRD (Orthotomus atrogularis)
ASHY TAILORBIRD (Orthotomus ruficeps) – It took a little patience, but we all scored on this one eventually in the Krabi mangroves.
RUFOUS-TAILED TAILORBIRD (Orthotomus sericeus) – Fairly well behaved for this species at Krung Ching.
Timaliidae (Tree-Babblers, Scimitar-Babblers, and Allies)
PIN-STRIPED TIT-BABBLER (Mixornis gularis)
FLUFFY-BACKED TIT-BABBLER (Macronus ptilosus) – We had a tough time trying to lure these babblers into good view along the Krung Ching trail, but most folks got a decent look before they retreated.
CHESTNUT-WINGED BABBLER (Cyanoderma erythropterum) – One of the most common forest babblers on the Peninsula, we ended up with a couple of good looks at Krung Ching and at KNC.
CHESTNUT-RUMPED BABBLER (Stachyris maculata) – These normally shy birds came right in for some great looks along the trails at KNC. This bird, and the two preceding species, all have inflatable blue air sacks on the side of the neck that inflate when they sing. I think it was evident only on this one on this tour.
GRAY-THROATED BABBLER (Stachyris nigriceps) – This one really gave us the run-around at the Ton Chongfa entrance road on that last morning. I don't think anyone got a good look.
GRAY-HEADED BABBLER (Stachyris poliocephala) – These weren't quite as bad, but they were close! Most folks got some sort of look at Krung Ching.
Pellorneidae (Ground Babblers and Allies)
MOUSTACHED BABBLER (Malacopteron magnirostre) – For some along the Krung Ching trail.
SCALY-CROWNED BABBLER (Malacopteron cinereum) – These babblers eventually came in pretty well for us along the KNC trails. Pink legs and that scaly crown help to i.d. it.
RUFOUS-CROWNED BABBLER (Malacopteron magnum) – This one decided to come in and sing while we were looking at the Chestnut-rumped Babblers at KNC. Bigger than the Scaly-crowned and with gray legs.
PUFF-THROATED BABBLER (Pellorneum ruficeps) [*]
BLACK-CAPPED BABBLER (Pellorneum capistratum) [*]
SHORT-TAILED BABBLER (Pellorneum malaccense) – A very brief encounter for some along the Krung Ching trail.
WHITE-CHESTED BABBLER (Pellorneum rostratum) [*]
ABBOTT'S BABBLER (Turdinus abbotti) [*]
Irenidae (Fairy-bluebirds)
Muscicapidae (Old World Flycatchers)
DARK-SIDED FLYCATCHER (Muscicapa sibirica) – On the final morning at Ton Chongfa Waterfall.
ASIAN BROWN FLYCATCHER (Muscicapa latirostris)
BROWN-STREAKED FLYCATCHER (Muscicapa williamsoni) – We again had one territorial bird on the grounds of our lodging at Krung Ching.
ORIENTAL MAGPIE-ROBIN (Copsychus saularis) [*]
WHITE-RUMPED SHAMA (Copsychus malabaricus) [*]
BLUE-THROATED FLYCATCHER (CHINESE) (Cyornis rubeculoides glaucicomans) – A female was seen briefly by some along the KNC trails.
TICKELL'S BLUE-FLYCATCHER (Cyornis tickelliae) – A male was the only bird that showed up at the blind at KNC this year.
FULVOUS-CHESTED JUNGLE-FLYCATCHER (Cyornis olivaceus) – This one responded a little too well, not sticking to any one perch long enough for all to really nail it and Krung Ching.
SIBERIAN BLUE ROBIN (Larvivora cyane) [*]
BLUE WHISTLING-THRUSH (Myophonus caeruleus) [*]
Sturnidae (Starlings)
ASIAN GLOSSY STARLING (Aplonis panayensis) – One of the last new birds of the trip at Phang Nga.
COMMON HILL MYNA (Gracula religiosa) [*]
GREAT MYNA (Acridotheres grandis)
JUNGLE MYNA (Acridotheres fuscus) – A few of these were feeding with other mynas in the grass just outside the Nakhon Si Thammarat airport.
COMMON MYNA (Acridotheres tristis)
Chloropseidae (Leafbirds)
GREATER GREEN LEAFBIRD (Chloropsis sonnerati) – We certainly saw this one better at Ton Chongfa than we did at Kaeng Krachan.
LESSER GREEN LEAFBIRD (Chloropsis cyanopogon) – We had some decent views of this small leafbird along the Krung Ching entrance road on our last morning there.
BLUE-WINGED LEAFBIRD (Chloropsis cochinchinensis)
Dicaeidae (Flowerpeckers)

Asian Paradise-Flycatcher (Photo by guide Dave Stejskal)

YELLOW-BREASTED FLOWERPECKER (Prionochilus maculatus) – That fruiting fig on the last morning at Ton Chongfa was full of flowerpeckers, including this one.
THICK-BILLED FLOWERPECKER (Dicaeum agile) – This, Yellow-vented, and Orange-bellied flowerpeckers rounded out the list of flowerpeckers in the above fruiting fig.
ORANGE-BELLIED FLOWERPECKER (Dicaeum trigonostigma) [N]
Nectariniidae (Sunbirds and Spiderhunters)
RUBY-CHEEKED SUNBIRD (Chalcoparia singalensis)
PLAIN SUNBIRD (Anthreptes simplex) – A female was busily feeding a fledgling at the entrance to Krung Ching on our final morning there - but most folks were watching the Banded Woodpeckers there. [N]
PLAIN-THROATED SUNBIRD (Anthreptes malacensis)
RED-THROATED SUNBIRD (Anthreptes rhodolaemus) – At least one of the males on that last morning at the Krung Ching entrance had a red throat, separating it from the very similar Plain-throated Sunbirds there as well.
OLIVE-BACKED SUNBIRD (Cinnyris jugularis) [*]
CRIMSON SUNBIRD (Aethopyga siparaja)
LITTLE SPIDERHUNTER (Arachnothera longirostra)
PURPLE-NAPED SPIDERHUNTER (Arachnothera hypogrammicum) – Rick and some others found a nice male on the grounds of our lodge at Krung Ching on that first afternoon there. It wasn't until very recently that this one was taken out of the sunbirds and placed with the spiderhunters.
YELLOW-EARED SPIDERHUNTER (Arachnothera chrysogenys) – Nice looks of one feeding above the trail at Krung Ching.
GRAY-BREASTED SPIDERHUNTER (Arachnothera modesta) – This one was checking out the Bombax flowers at the Krung Ching parking lot.
Motacillidae (Wagtails and Pipits)
GRAY WAGTAIL (Motacilla cinerea)
Passeridae (Old World Sparrows)
Estrildidae (Waxbills and Allies)
PIN-TAILED PARROTFINCH (Erythrura prasina) – Yotin put us onto a small group of these feeding in the seeding bamboo with both White-rumped and White-bellied munias at KNC.
WHITE-RUMPED MUNIA (Lonchura striata)
WHITE-BELLIED MUNIA (Lonchura leucogastra)

VARIABLE FLYING FOX (Pteropus hypomelanus) – These big flying foxes used to roost right over the tents on the island, but it looks like they've now moved.
COMMON TREESHREW (Tupaia glis) [*]
CRAB-EATING MACAQUE (Macaca fascigularis)
DUSKY LEAF MONKEY (Presbytis obscura) [*]
WHITE-HANDED GIBBON (Hylobates lar) [*]
RED-BELLIED SQUIRREL (Callosciurus erythraeus)
GRAY-BELLIED SQUIRREL (Callosciurus caniceps)
PLANTAIN SQUIRREL (Callosciurus notatus) – Nicely along the main trail at KNC.
LOWE'S SQUIRREL (Sundasciurus lowii) – This was the small brown squirrel that some of us saw along the Krung Ching trail.
RED GIANT FLYING SQUIRREL (Petaurista petaurista) – It's rare to get these out in the daytime, but there's no doubt about this big red squirrel as it ran along the limbs over the trail at Krung Ching.
COMMON PALM CIVET (Viverra zibetha) – We watched this one cross the road at Krung Ching that first evening.


Totals for the tour: 188 bird taxa and 12 mammal taxa
