Still looking out for other Migrants, such as Mugimaki Flycatcher. The past few days I have been seeing Yellow-rumped Flycatchers and not much else. Yesterday, I checked Phutthamonthon park and only found Ashy Minivets and a Yellow-rumped Flycatcher. This time of year most birds are nesting so there’s a lot going on, besides migration.
Today I checked PR early and it yielded Ashy Minivets and Yellow-rumped Flycatcher. I also checked it yesterday and I only found Yellow-rumped Flycatcher. I’m still waiting on other Flycatchers.
As most of the migrants are new to me, I’m learning as I go with some of the birds coming through. The female Yellow-rumped can be separated from conjoiners by the white wing markings.
Today, after PR, I went to Sirikit Park. Still only Yellow-rumped Flycatcher, and a few Ashy Minivets. And an update on the White-breasted Waterhen chicks, which had a sad update in this post. They are probably all dead thanks to the gardener’s cat. Yes, cats ARE a PROBLEM.
The most exciting sighting was one I almost missed. I only got a picture of them flying away, already far. I think it was a migrating flock of Black Bazas on their way passing over Bangkok. Luckily, I was able to crop and see enough detail to make the identification.
These days I’ve been busy since I’m trying to see the migrating birds.
