Trip Report-Nam Nao NP Phetchabun Thailand

Trip Report-Nam Nao NP Phetchabun Thailand

This trip report covers my second visit to Nam Nao NP, Phetchabun Thailand of the current cool season.

I arrived at the park at 8.30am and headed down to the campground area. The weather was beautiful, clear blue skies and cool season temperatures in the range 16-24C during the day.

The open areas, where I usually do my bird photography, were  busy with lots of tents in evidence and few birds, although I was rewarded with some close-up views of a Grey-headed Woodpecker that was foraging on the ground near where I parked.

As is standard for me at Nam Nao,  I kitted myself out with leech socks, but did not encounter any of the critters, however I did not venture out on any of the dark wet trails.

Overall it was a poor days birding in the open areas probably because of the amount of people around. Nonetheless I did manage to photograph most of the common species that are to be found in the area.

The only new species I recorded was a pair of Puff-throated Bulbuls feeding on a fruiting tree.

On my way out of the park I took a look along the entrance road although I found nothing of interest, apart from large piles of elephant poop!
