Mae Sot Magpies

I am working in Mae Sot today and tomorrow so this morning visited the arable land close between the airport and the Myanmar border.  This area is very dry at this time of year, and bird activity was relatively low, but highlights included a group of 5+ Red-billed Blue Magpies and two Pied Harriers (adult male and adult female).  I heard several Siberian Rubythroats but the only one I tried to coax out of the dense undergrowth was not playing ball.

The open fields held several Eastern Yellow Wagtails and Amur Wagtails, plus the usual Brown Shrikes, Paddyfield Pipits and Eastern Stonechats.
