    I saw what was either a Black Naped or Black Hooded Oriole while I was at the Exercise Park yesterday. They are supposed to be common birds but rare enough for me to be happy. No chance of a photograph from my phone. But inspired by the pics here I have ordered a Canon SX60HS

    Good one, you dont say where you are but if it is BKK then there have been over 120 species of birds recorded in what is called Suan Rot Fai park.

    You will find that the 60 is very difficult to hold still at high zoom and needs a rest of some sort, I use a tripod all the time.

    Great classic thread, Birding.

    Should be archival.
    Thanks.

    That one was around Singburi but they are common over most of the country.

    ^ I've Thai friends who say crows are extinct in Thailand. Not that I have ever checked to see if it was true. They claimed people don't like them because they steal things and therefore kill them.

    As Birding says, Misskit, large-billed crows are very common in Thailand. I expect you have heard them if not seen them flying.

    ^ I have never heard a crow in Thailand and I know how a crow sounds. Maybe not common in the North?

    We have those terrible brown and black birds that behave a bit like crows, eating snakes and things. Don't remember what they are called.


    Greater coucal.

    Yes. That is as close to a crow as I've seen here.

    Large billed crows are a similar size, perhaps slightly larger, but with bigger bills and without the red eyes.

    In some instances, local crows have been known to be almost predator-like [which is not their nature] aggressive - stalking and swooping down on farm yard baby chicks and ducklings as well as the assorted reptilian varieties....snakes, jingjo, etc.

    The coucals take baby birds. That's why I said they were horrible things. I watch mother birds trying to protect their chicks from coucals often. The chicks never win.
