Where are the tours taking place?
Currently, we only have a small number of destinations available. Primarily the large national parks, Khao Yai and Kaeng Krachan.
When is the best time for tours in Thailand?
Generally speaking, roughly the first half of the year is the best time for birding. Many winter visitors arrive during this time, and over the course of this period many birds start breeding.
The larger hornbill species nest for quite a long period. Especially towards the end of the nesting period when the young are growing and need regular feeding is a good time to watch the male and towards the end also the female bring in food. In Khao Yai this tends to be around April - May usually for the Great Hornbill and the Wreathed Hornbill.
Pittas often nest a bit before or even in the wet season, but their nests can be hard to find. The broadbills often nest around March - May, Kaeng Krachan has all the Thai broadbill species, the Green Broadbill is rarely seen there, but there is a decent chance to see the other stunning species.
