The Birds of
Doi Ang Khang
The following pictures were taken in the Doi Ang Khang area during a 12 day stay in February 2003. It was rarely possible to get close enough for good photographs so I was using zoom factors between 8x and 80x! Many of the birds we saw remain unidentified, particularly the warblers and other small species, but the fine weather enabled us to go for long walks every day and although we did not see vast numbers of birds (except Red-whiskered Bulbuls) we did see several of what we termed "quality birds" on most days. I got up before dawn only once as I discovered that few birds were about until the sun came over the mountains.
