Wanted to get a photo of the Crested Kingfisher. But, did not get a good shot.
Mae Wong N.P. is a bit out of the way for the local Bangkok crowd. It has changed allot since I first started coming here a few years ago.
Now the road to Chong Yen. The highest point you can camp in the park is paved all the way. A very good road.
This year the Kaji Pheasant are everywhere along the road. If wanting a good sighting of it, head out from the lower campground and drive up the mountain. Early morning or late evening are the best times to spot these birds.
Just before the campground at the top, Chong Yen. There is a small stream with allot of good birds showing. The park has put up a small bling for birders to watch the birds. Very easy to photograph and view there.
Here are a few pics from the area.
This first guy is a first for me. Very easy to take. This guy lives around a small stream just before the upper campground.

Get a good guide that knows the area, and spend a day or more here.
I cut my stay here shot. I have other places I want to go and explore.
Here is a link to my flickr site with pics from Mae Wing.
Good birding and all the best, Gary
