Orange-headed thrush (Geokichla citrina)

I am presuming these are pictures of an orange-headed thrush (Geokichla citrine) ? He/she was hopping around in front of me in the forest in KK. I also saw a male and female paradise flycatcher together - but I was not fast enough, a pity as the male was beautiful.

Thanks! After my previous dismissal of "becoming a birder" I have to say that taking pictures of birds from my hide (whilst I am hoping for mammals to show) is becoming a very enjoyable activity for me.

Haha, I usually say that birds are to fill up the time between mammal and reptile sightings. And surely it's a joy to see the more strikingly coloured species.
However, taking position somewhere to wait for a few warblers... hmmm not for me.

Funnily though, a week or two ago I took a shot of a Blue-eared Kingfisher in Khao Yai, and it's the most 'faved' picture in my Flickr photostream. I guess birds are easier to get 'faves'. Ok, I was quite happy with the shot, but to say it's the best image I have taken so far... I think not. But of course it also has to do with the luck of getting onto the Flickr Explore page...

I was recently fortunate enough to get a photo of an Orange-headed Thrush on a trip to Phu Toei NP, only one I have ever seen.

Got back to camp just on dark and could see a vague outline of a bird on a log 20m from the tent, I had been in the forest and had the ISO pushed right up on the camera so was able to a reasonable shot in spite of the poor light.




RIP 2018 - Robby will always be remembered for his sharing of his trips and knowledge. Missed by all.
