Welcome to Vietnam Bird News

Bird news from Vietnam, from Vietnam's resident and visiting birders.

15 October 2010

Thick-billed Warbler, Lenin Park, Hanoi

Hi all,

to make a long story short - lots of birds, few species. Around mid-day (15th October) not too many exciting birds, best of all:

- at least 1 Thick-billed Warbler (maybe 2 birds) in the hedge row between the bamboo and the flower garden allowing great views!
- 1 female-type Siberian Blue Robin behind the toilet
- 1 female-type White-tailed Robin behind the toilet
- a huge bird-wave consisting of 2 Grey-headed Canary Flycatchers, at least 4 Yellow-browed Warblers, 1 possible Pale-legged Leaf Warbler and tons of White-eyes

No sign of any trappers or Ferruginous Flycatchers.

The toilet was locked on my arrival which means there'll be more 'business' going on behind it - mind your steps!


Seen also the same day but in the morning, behind the toilet, a female or juv Siberian Rubythroat. Shy and secretive, difficult to approach.
