Red River Island

Hi all,

Two hours this afternoon at the Red River Island (essentialy the little forest) produced some nice birds. The highlights were :

- 1 Bluethroat, in the thickets between the forest and the fields

- 1 Small Niltava male inside denser vegetation

- 2 Harriers, among them 1 Pied imm. identified : fairly plain, rich chocolate brown above / Chestnut-brown body and underwing coverts.

- 1 presumed Green-backed Flycatcher male

-1 Ceicercus Warbler (with wings bars)

- 1 pair of Black-shouldered Kites, attacking the Harriers... and vice versa (photo above) !
