From a trip to Kaeng Krachan National Park last week, I was set up for squirrels and did not get a single squirrel picture but this little interesting bird showed up, Asian Stubtail (Urosphena squameiceps), as well as some more common but still nice KKNP birds. Forest was nice but there still a lot of leaves on the trees which makes forest floor photography more difficult due to lack of light, but its drying out already which could mean a fruitful dry season.

Black-basra (quite a severe crop)

And even though I missed out on a squirrel I did at least get one mammal, a northern treeshrew:

I didn't even know about the existence of the Asian Stubtail. I guess I would have just written it off as a warbler and since those warbler pages in the bird books give me headaches I probably wouldn't even have tried to ID it.
Learned something new again. I have to admit it does look a bit different than a warbler though.
