Welcome to Thaibirdspot. Thaibirdspot was created as my own personal blog, but also to assist birders and those interested in bird photography that are interested in birding in Thailand and SE Asia.

With over 300 recognised birding sites including; 127 National Parks, 100+ Wildlife Sanctuaries, over 100 Forest Parks and a number of Non-Hunting areas, Thailand has to be one of the world’s top bird-watching locations.
Thailand is also a mecca for migratory shorebirds, such as the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Chinese Egret, Asian Dowitcher and Nordman’s Greenshank, which can all be found at the right time of year just a few hours from Bangkok.
