A VIP Thrush

Some images of a Black-breasted Thrush spotted on November 14th at the Botanical Gardens, among a flock of Japanese. This is a regular winter visitor in Hanoi, I usually see 1 or 2 a year.

There is no doubt, winter is definitely here...

Hanoi gets pretty cold in winter. If you are planning to go there from December to March, bring a good jacket…


  1. This species is not VIP one but also hard to find :)
    Hope he will be back, I missed 2 species of thrush this season and dont wanna lose any more chance Zzzz....
