Welcome to Vietnam Bird News

Bird news from Vietnam, from Vietnam's resident and visiting birders.

Brown-chested Jungle Flycatcher / Hanoi-Sept. 2017

Again a nice autumn migration season for this scarce species in Hanoi with many (at least 8-10) sightings (1st one 1st Sept) both in Vuon nhan and Bach Thao. In the video above, the dark lower mandible-tip indicate this is a 1st winter bird.

Cyornis brunneatus breeds in southeast China and spends the winter in peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, and Borneo. It is uncommon even in its core range and virtually unrecorded in Vietnam outside Hanoi!

The IUCN lists the species as Vulnerable because of the loss of mature primary lowland forest throughout its range.


  1. Hello. Nice to discover your amazing blog. I would like to know if there is any ringing / banding bird group in Vietnam cause I wonder if I could join it for any open session ringing birds.
    Thanks in advance and congrats for your posts and pics!

  2. Going over the posts, it would appear that Lenin Park (or what used to be Lenin Park) is past its glory. They have "cleaned' it up; making it pretty sterile. Likewise, the "forest" on Red River Island is fast disappearing, I am surprised that the Blue Magpies and Laughing-thrushes manage to hold on.

    Where else is good to bird in and around Ha Noi? And are there still active birders?
