Strawberry fields

Strawberry Finch

A return to the paddies in Mae Sot this morning produced a similar selection of birds to yesterday, though one notable addition was a large raptor spp which looked like an Oriental Honey Buzzard, based on the brief, distant looks that I got.

There were at least five Strawberry Finches in song in the same place where I always see them, and the moulting male above decided to show off for a few minutes in front of the camera.

Other notables were five Grey-headed Lapwing, a group of at least three Eastern Yellow Wagtails and four Amur Wagtails, several Paddyfield Pipits, a male Pied Harrier and a small party of Chestnut-tailed Starlings. Rubythroats were calling in several places - at least six birds heard.
