West-central and Northwest Thailand, Feb/March 2016

From February 21 - March 05, 2016, Sheridan, Willlie Sekula and I spent fifteen days in the west-central, north-central, and northwest parts of Thailand, expertly led by Dave Sargeant of Chiang Mai.

We visited Pak Thale, Laem Pak Bia, Nong Pla Lai, Kaeng Krachan, Bueng Boraphet, Mai Ping, Doi Inthanon, Mae Taeng, Chiang Dao, Fang, Doi Lang, and Doi Ang Kang.

We managed to see four species of nuthatch:

Two of five Giant Nuthatches (Sitta magna magna):

- I was a split-second away from getting a decent flight photo!:

One of two Chestnut-vented Nuthatches (Sitta nagaensis nagaensis):

Two of six Burmese Nuthatches (Sitta neglecta):

Two of three Velvet-fronted Nuthatches (Sitta frontalis frontalis):
