Tam Dao Water tank road, 26-3-2012

Hi all,

An all too short morning stroll along the Water tank road produced quite a few birds, although nothing unusual.

Birds noted were,
a few flocks of Striated (Indochinese) Yuhina, 3 different flocks of Grey Laughingthrushes, 2 singing Black-throated Laughingthrushes, 1 each Golden-fronted and Great Barbet calling, 2 White-browed Shrike Babblers, a few Chestnut and Black Bulbuls, 3 Spot-necked Babblers, Streak-breasted and White-browed Scimitar-babblers calling, 2 unknown treepies calling, 2 or 3 Pale-footed Bush Warblers, 1 Grey Bushchat.
Quite alright for only 1 hour of birding - we have definitely seen worse, right Simon?!
However, my nemesis bird remains Short-tailed Parrotbill...



  1. Hi Falk
    I am coming to Vietnam on Sunday (1st) for my fifth visit in five years! Birding Fansipan, then a couple of days at Tam Dao (missed parrotbills in particular on my previous visit), then to Ba Be/Xuan Lac to see the friends I made during my BirdLife survey for White-eared Night Herons in Bac Kan in 2008. If you have any further up-to-date info on Tam Dao in particular I'd really appreciate an email: davidfwalsh@hotmail.co.uk. Thanks David
