Khao Yai August 2021 was created by scott marr
I've been on a couple of trip to KY recently. First was early Saturday and I was amazed at the amount of people. Then early afternoon mid week and still packed. I think everything being closed with the lockdowns brought a lot of people in. The was a large group taking photos at the 30km viewpoint, with hornbills feeding close by. We saw a single elephant, all other vehicles did a U turn, we were the only ones that passed. Got me wondering if it was the first trip for many of them.

Definitely not a first trip for most of those photographing the hornbills.

The word on the Thai-birding-photography-grapevine had many scrambling to get easy close-up shots of the hornbills feeding here. Once the word gets out, the photographers will flock to a place, as is the case here.
