Inside Thailand's Conflicted Forests
Birding in Phu Jong Nayoi National Park, March 10-13, 2013

My wife, Supeena, and I spent two months travelling in mainland Southeast Asia, three weeks of which we spent birding throughout the west, central and northeast parts of the Thailand. We have birded on trips to Southeast Asia for over a decade. Our last stop on this trip, Phu Jong Nayoi National Park in Ubon Ratchathani Province, provided such an unusual experience that I decided to write this narrative accounting our journey. It is an informal travel essay, with links to photographic illustrations from my Flickr photostream, and in it I list all of the bird species that we identified, along with maps and location information that may be useful for birders heading to the park. For bird species, photos from Phu Jong Nayoi are used when possible, otherwise they were taken elsewhere in Thailand.
