Urban birding with the Urban Birder

I took David Lindo and his partner, Penny for an early morning birding trip to Suan Rot Fai this morning.  David has done lots of birding in urban environments around the world, but I think my patch managed to hold its own!  Goodies this morning included yesterday's Black-winged Cuckooshrike and the long-staying male Chinese Blue Flycatcher, with a nice selection of "sibes" to make David's first venture in Asian avifauna somewhat overwhelming - at least six Brown Shrikes, several Yellow-brows, point-blank views of Taiga Flycatcher, two Asian Brown Flycatchers, several Blue-tailed Bee-eaters overhead, two races of Ashy Drongo, a single Black Drongo, 10+ Black-naped Orioles, prolonged views of Black-capped Kingfisher and a couple of Indian Rollers.

I appreciate your sharing this wonderful information with us and providing excellent information in your article. Children (or adults for that matter) who have seen The Wheel of Fortune crave to spin that huge prize wheel. Would you like to own it? Hopefully this article will be helpful. It explains DIY spinner prize wheel.

Anyone can become an Urban Birder. You can do it anywhere and any time, whether you've got the day to spare, on your way to work, during your lunch break or just looking out of a window. .So towns love language test and cities might be refuges from parasites. They're places where a bird can raise its young secure in the knowledge that its young is actually its young. There are probably other benefits too. Cities provide rich sources of food, and often safety from predators that are deterred by humans or our domestic pets.
