After numerous fruitless attempts I finally managed to see the Rufous-cheeked Laughingthrush in Ba Vi. No tape or effort needed, they were just there, a quiet party of six birds, at the beginning of the steps up to the left peak (Uncle Ho's). Seen once more on the way down, really good and close views, beautiful birds!
Other interesting birds: 2 Orange-headed thrushes, 2 Siberian Thrushes (female and male), 1 first winter Blue-and-white Flycatcher. And one more lifer, but I won't tell which one ;-)
