Some more photos at Gia Lam patch (Hanoi)

Hi Friends! With the kindly help of Sebastien, I have several chances visiting the patch at Gia Lam (Hanoi). Great place on some days with many birds but confusion some days with few birds but hunters. However, I got some more new photos for me - particularly the 1cy Brown-chested Jungle Flycatcher (spotted the 16th Sept. with Jonathan Eames and John Parr, and again the 18th).

Brown-chested Jungle Flycatcher (1cy : lower mandible partly black, tertials buff tipped).
The individual photographed by Sebastien (13th Sept.) exactly at the same place (almost on the same tree!) was an adult (lower mandible entirely yellow)

  1. It's remarkable to pay a quick visit this web site and reading the views of all mates on the topic of this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting know-how.

  2. For technical reasons Hung can not insert those photos on his post. So I uploaded them from an email sent by him, unfortunately there is a substantial lost of quality.
    Hope this problem will be resolve soon!


  3. Great to see your pics here as well, Hung!
    Cheers, Florian
