I especially like the female and male pheasant shot.

What is your 'opinion' on this species? The books are rather confusing, and so are the opinions of other birders.
Is it Silver Pheasant or Kalij Pheasant?
Maybe there is no clear answer.

Nice!
Good to see these partridges in detail in your shots. Often see them running off in the forest, but usually too dark to get a shot.

Lophura leucomelanos crawfurdii is the subspecies of Kalij in Kaeng Krachan which do look very like Silver. These are very unlike Kalij elsewhere and the KK ones identity has been debated before. Taken from another forum www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=256746
