Thailand, Christmas 2016, 1

Guided by Tony (the Eagle Eye! and a great bird guide!) we had great sightings on our second day in Khao Yai N.P.. On the first day, when we were alone,  we saw three birds, - in a park that has more than 300!! Now we saw many more, and some spectacular ones!! Details will follow later!
