Dr Chan joined a small group of birders from Perak branch to a birding trip to north-east Thailand. This was arranged by Ooi Beng Yean who had been there the year before. The trip lasted 10 days and covered three areas namely Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary, Namnao Natioal Park and Phu Luang Wildlife Sanctuary. The last place was quite close to the border with Laos so we were really into the wilderness of the Thai kingdom. This presentation will illustrate some of the interesting birds encountered. It also provides an idea of how a fully arranged tour is like in Thailand. Such bird tours are becoming more and more popular in Thailand as well as other countries.

MNS members, friends and non-members are welcome.
