Thailand Birding Trip March 2012 - Day 3 (Pak Chong)

After completed our "mission" at Huai Kha Kheang, we swung back to the east part of Thailand. The next location was the Wat Pra Puttabant Noi located at the Saraburi Province.

It was a brief stopped at Wat Pra Puttabant Noi. After that we headed to the last birding location for the Day 3, Pak Chong.  

While on the way to Pak Chong, we saw this tough Toyota Hilux which loaded with many passengers at the rear compartment. Guess how many passengers ?

Here are the species that I managed to photographed at Pak Chong :

Green Bee Eater

Small Pratincole

Small Pratincole
Oriental Skylark

 Eastern Marsh Harrier (Instead of Pied Harrier stated earlier)

Zitting Cisticola

Siberian Stonechat

Lesser Coucal
Beautiful sunset :

It was a long and tiring day traveling to 3 different locations, nevertheless when I counted the many number of species that I managed to photographed I felt that the effort was worth it. 

Thanks for viewing.

Nice trip you have there and great photography.
I think your Pied Harrier Ia actually a Eastern Marsh Harrier. This is due to the heavy streaking on the breast part which is absent in Pied.

Nice phot. Like it a lot.
