There are many birds and animals from several zoogeographic zones residing together in Thailand. Comparing to our neighborhood countries, Thailand has a unique outstanding zoogeography.
Thailand as situated in the middle of the Oriental Region, which is geographically called Indo-Chinese Sub-Region, a zone that supports various kinds of bird species. Thailand support 986 specie bird or 10% from total specie bird in the world.
The best season for birding is winter. October to February, is the most suitable time for birdwatching in Thailand, because many of those, which have their origins in Pale-arctic Region in Northern Asia, usually migrates to reside and retreat in Thailand. The winter-retreated birds are normally called Non-breeding Visitors. In this season, both Thai and foreign birdwatchers are quite excited because the numbers of bird species found in Thailand, will be double! In rainy or dry season, many kinds of the migrants come to build their nest and laid there eggs. They are called "Breeding Visitor".

Testimonial.

Hi Par, I want to thank you for an amazing experience - you worked very hard, and so did I! But, the results were worth it all. My highlights would definitely be the Spoonbilled Sandpiper, Silver Oriole, Blue-bearded Bee-eater, all the Kingfishers, and Stonechat. I thought Khao Yai was fantastic and we will spend more time there next time.

Hello Par, We enjoyed the trip very much. No complaint from anyone. Steven like your company service better than from the other company...so He want to go again in December with BirdEco. Do not worry ...we are only 50% birder...So saw so many lifer in this trip and is very happy. I think altogether he spotted about 25 lifers. Steven (sharkspin) got his Indian Roller/Green Bee-eater and Hoopoe....and he have good food so he is very happy. Me? I got many action shot of Gulls and terns in breeding plumage. Also got the Green Bee-eater nest...so I am happy. We had a good time ....and enjoyed having MAC and Pank to be our guide too. I will definately plan another trip to Thailand and will definately use WildBirdEco because of the good service and more importantly ...because of my friends who are WildBirdEco. Or maybe Sharkspin will plan ...he is hooked.
