Lenin Park - 15th April

A smart Forest Wagtail

A morning photo stroll at Lenin Park produced some nice birds, including : 1 male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher, 1 Seicercus Warbler, 2 Pale-legged Leaf Warblers, 1 male Taiga Flycatcher, 1 Burmese Shrike, 1 Oriental Skylark (probably escapee), 1 female Rock Thrush sp, 3 Grey-capped Greenfinches, 1 Forest Wagtail.
Friendly Yellow-rumped Flycatcher. Regular in our Hanoian parks, but always an emotion to spot this wonderful bird

Burmese Shrike, also very photogenic

Secretive Pale-Legged Leaf Warbler , spends most of the time foraging low down on branches, along a wall
I didn't clearly ID this female Rock Thrush, but you are going to help me ! Scaly above but not as heavily (I mean : not big contrast brown-white) as the female White-throated seen on the Red River Island few days ago. Plain brown-eared. Didn't see the belly. Chesnut-bellied Rock Thrush ?

  1. Hey Sebastian,

    Some great birds as usual.

    A nice White-throated Rock Thrush for me that last bird.
