Claudia's Leaf Warbler

An hour spent grilling phylloscs in the grounds of the Ministry of Public Relations this morning resulted in a tally of four Yellow-broweds, three Eastern Crowneds and one Claudia's Leaf Warbler.

This is the second Claudia's I have seen in Bangkok, the other being at the same location in Nov 2011. Today's bird was very bright indeed, in fact the wing bars were almost golden. One thing that I noted with both this year's and last year's birds was that they were both quite confiding - feeding in the lower branches of the canopy (less than 20 ft off the ground) and not being concerned by my presence.
