Just got back from a few days in the forest of Thap Lan National Park and one of the birds I photographed there is this male Black-headed woodpecker.
Males have a red cap while the females do not.

Birding I've been cycling past this spot for months now but in the last week or so I've noticed these birds. After a good Google I believe them to be Swallows. For reasons unknown to me they remain between the two same electricity poles. Is there a a particular reason why? My cycle route is 25km and these Swallows don't appear in any other place than the photo.

Perhaps their nest is nearby.

Could well be. The walkways/banks on the rice paddy's are soft enough for nesting.

The more primitive species nest in existing cavities, for example in an old woodpecker nest, while other species excavate burrows in soft substrate such as sand banks.

Are they barn swallows or ashy wood-swallows?

I'm no bird expert but after Google-ing I'd say Barn Swallows.

Indeed they are Barn Swallows and most migrate back and forth from the north in the northern summer and south to places like Thailand in the northern winter.

There are a few which stay in Thailand all year round but I dont know if they actually nest here as their nesting season is when they are in their northern territory.

They like to rest on wires particularly above water and hawk for insects on the wing which must take fantastic eyesight and coordination. Think trying to catch a mossie with a pair of tweezers.

Here is one sitting on a lotus seed head in a swamp :

Heading off to the forest tomorrow for a few days in a place I've never been before so I will post another bird before I go.

Two heads are better than one.

Recently on a trip to Huai Mae Dee I was lucky to get a look and quick photo of this Great Hornbill.



These are real big birds and their wing beats can be heard before they come into sight.
