Cat Tien & Da Lat birding
There are two different spots, you have to stay overnight at a new established town Tu Mo Rong to visit both. From there you can drive to a new road construction leads to Mang Ri commune. Note that the area is very new so security is not guaranteed, however when you arrive spot (see on the map), a lot of things to see. One of the most desired is Golden-winged Laughingthrush although it is not common along the road but you climb a bit to reach 1800m will be easier. Black-crowned Barwing is very common around. Surprisingly Grey-crowned Crocias, which is believed confine to Da Lat area also can be found here.
This was not a full-time birding trip, my teaching mission for the Wetland Ecology Training Course in Mekong Basin, however I was luckily to stay at the Yezin Agricultural University Guesthouse where surrounded by wood-trees and good habitat for 2 endemics, the Burmese Bushlark and White-throated Babbler. I also had a chance to visit Inle lake where all participants took their field practices/research on wetlands. Here and on the traveling ways, I gain more lifers which were including White-throated Laughingthrus, Blue-throated Barbet, Grey Sibia and especially Jerdon's Bushchat.
In oder to bring birding information of Indochinese countries to Birdfair UK 2014, Vietnam Wildlife Tours & Research has prepared this booklet. It is including all best birding spots in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Each birding site, we put accommodation available, transportation and key bird species. In the end, you will have a list of endemic species that all birders want to see when they visit the region. The hard copy has Bird-checklist and is free available at our office, for those who could not visit the office, please email us and give us your address, we will then ship it to you for free.
