Southeast Asian Birds

Recommended Posts

These photos were taken back in 2014 and are my last photos to identify from the trip. 

The first one is late April in Hispaw,  Myanmar

The second one is early March near Kampot, Cambodia

The third picture is taken on the outskirts of Phnom Phen, Cambodia  in mid Feb.and I am also wondering if they are domesticated?

The last two pictures were taken in Tonsay, Thailand (the south) in late May. 

Thank you for any help!

5. Pass

Thank you for your post.

Although 1 is compelling for a Sardinian Warbler, I have yet to find any records of one occurring in Burma and the species does not show up, not even as a rare bird on Ebird. 

For #2, I could not find any species with this name anywhere. The closest I found was the Rusty-fronted Tody Flycatcher in South America.

3 does look like Helmeted Guineafowl but they are native to Africa so they are obviously domesticated.

If you could give more detail for 1 & 2 as to the reasons why this is what you think, that would be great.

Thanks for your help.

A. Looks like a Prinia. Possibly Ashy Prinia but my book only shows ranges in India so unsure whether it stretches into Burma.

1. Gray-breasted Prinia - similar to Ashy but has the darker collar across the breast (I can't find Ashy records for Myanmar on eBird either)

2. Initial thought was some species of spiderhunter or sunbird

3. Yes, domesticated guineafowl

4. Chinese Blackbird I believe

5. Likely another Chinese Blackbird

Thank you! I believe 1 and 3 are confirmed! My initial thought was the same for 2 but I cannot find a species that matches. 4 has a crossed bill and seems glossy and appears out of range for the Chinese Blackbird. I will keep searching for 2, 4 & 5. Thanks again!

Most of my birding experience is in Thailand. I'm fairly certain of:

1. Gray-breasted prinia

3. Helmeted guineafowl (from Africa)

4. Blue whistling-thrush

Blue Whistling-Thrush is a much better suggestion for #4! I think that's a good fit.
