Welcome to Vietnam Bird News

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

Tam Dao, Water tank trail, 19/02

Hi all,

Tam Dao's reputation for being one of the toughest spots to go birding is certainly justified!
Few birds and fog. No sign of Greater Rufous-headed Parrotbill. Or its short-tailed cousin.
However, we managed to get brief views of other interesting species, including:

- 3 Collared Scops Owls on the drive up to Tam Dao sitting along the road
- Silver Pheasant (2 females)
- Bar-backed Partridge (heard)
- Grey-throated Babbler
- Spot-necked Babbler
- Green Cochoa (heard in the distance by Simon)
- Great Barbet (heard)
- Coral-billed Scimitar-babbler
- Streak-throated Scimitar-babbler
- Grey Laughingthrush
- White-hooded Babbler (a pair and a small flock)
- Grey Laughingthrush
- Treepie (Grey or Collared)
- Fork-tailed Sunbird
- Silver-eared Mesia (heard only)

Anything else? Grey Wagtail to finish it of.

Simon, Stephan, Falk
