    Ashy wood-swallow

    ^^^ They could be ashy wood-swallows. They like to sit on cables just before dusk.




    Although, going by their feeding behaviour, probably not what you saw.

    I didnt realise there were birds nests collected in Thailand, the learning process continues.

    An interesting site: http://factsanddetails.com/asian/cat.../item2429.html

    Depends where it was taken the 2 species (Black-nest Swiftlet and Germain's Swiftlet ) that have the nests collected are both in the south. If in the north it could be something like a Dusky Crag martin.

    Yeah, they are collected here. People build big 3 or 4 storey "houses" with no windows, just a few portholes and play recordings of the birds all day (to attract more). I imagine there are floors and maybe lots of walls inside. A few companies make big money buying from the farmers and on-selling.
    I'm in Hatyai.
    I will try to get the wife to photograph some as she is the photographer... I'm just a point and shoot guy.

    Lets see if the quality has improved.

    Saw this fellow upside down on a branch. Went home, got the camera, and he was still upside down on the branch. Took a shot from far off but it was no good and when I got closer he flew off, but I managed to get this shot.

    ^ Nice photo Neverna. What camera do you use?

    I am struggling badly with my camera setup. I need a doubler/tripler, as suggested by Birding, as I can't get within 50 metres. I should have brought my tripod with me...next time.
