Cat Tien 18.-21.3.2011

Hi all,

I had a good long weekend in Cat Tien from the 18th to the 21st of March. I spent two nights in HQ and one at the Crocodile Lake. The trail to the lake was surprisingly slow in producing birds. This was mainly due to the many noisy Vietnamese students on the trail. However, the trails around HQ were good. The best species were:

- 3x Bar-bellied Pitta

- Germain’s Peackock-Pheasant (2 seen very well; many heard)

- Siamese Fireback (a couple)

- Good selection of Woodpeckers, especially Heart-spotted Woodpecker

- Many White-crested Laughingthrushes

Biggest misses: Blue-rumped Pitta and Pale-headed Woodpecker

Cheers, Stephan
