The Birdlist

There are going to be some people who want to know what birds we have in our forest. So for list-minded people… the list is listed below. In March 2016 we had a small team of enthusiastic and very skilled birders visit, including Frederic Goes of The Birds of Cambodia: An Annotated Checklist fame; and Suy Senglim and Kong San Ratanak, both excellent birders and wildlife photographers. They were able to confirm and add to our bird list, now up there with over 120 species.

We are most worried about the White Winged Duck, our very endangered bird. A pair was seen in April 2013, then a lone duck in 2014. We heard in September 2016, a hunter had seen a number of them (and tried to kill them). We sincerely hope he was unsuccessful. We shall have to do some more research to determine their real status.

Notable on this list is that we have recorded 15 of a possible 16 species of woodpeckers!  These are one of my favourite birds. Now I need to go and at least nail down this species for my own personal list. And if you are not familiar with the status coding – see the key at the bottom of the table. And..
