White-throated Rock-thrush

Early morning walk around the Ministry of Public relations gave me a very nice surprise when I glimpsed a medium sized passerine a couple of times that I couldn't get any detail on...and once it gave itself up it turned out to be a spanking male White-throated Rock-thrush.  This is the third year in a row that I have found this species in central Bangkok during the first ten days of  November, and it is obviously peak time for them to be passing through this part of Thailand.  Interestingly all the birds I have seen have been males.
