Birds Observed on Southern Trip So

led by Kasma Loha-unchit

Buffy Fish Owl This is a list of 147 species of birds identified by ornithologist William Southern during the 2000 trip to Southern THailand. It represents what he was able to identify while driving through the country side, walking in the vicinity of temples, and on nature walks in several National Parks. The dedicated birdwatcher could produce a much longer list. The objective was to identify what we saw in conjunction with the scheduled activities and during any free time devoted to birding.

The nomenclature used in this list is from A Guide to the Birds of Thailand by Boonsong Lekagul and Philip D. Round (1991. Saha Karn Bhaet Co., Ltd.)
