Bird spotting from our terrace in Thitaw Lay House

See below for our regularly updated observations (date and time, English and scientific name, pic source). 

Most pictures are simply googled or found through http://avibase.bsc-eoc.org/. Our plan for 2016-17 is to steadily replace the internet pictures by our own material (smartphone pics through the Celestron scope).

Clicking on the picture will lead you to a narrative on the bird, mostly found on Wikipedia. 

 

We will be very grateful for any text contribution, correction or mentioning of a copyright issue.
