There are many wonderful areas for birding in Thailand but the north is perhaps the top of the list. In the months of October and November particularly you will find many birders from Bangkok making the journey north. As the weather cools many birds from China migrate south to Northern Thailand.
Favorite North Thailand birding areas include Doi Inthanon, Doi Ang Khang, Doi Lang and Doi Pha Hom Pok. They are all within an easy drive from Lana Thai Villa. In these places you will see an array of birds. You are not likely to see Thailand’s national bird, a pheasant called the Siamese fireback or Diard’s fireback. However there are plenty of species to discover. Here is a list of just some of the rarer birds you might find. These are mostly in the mountains of the north and usually in National Parks. Many are within an easy drive from Lana Thai Villa.
