Phong Nha Birding

Phong Nha National Park.

This afternoon I walked along the river towards Phong Nha cave. I left my motor-bike at the new national park headquarters and had a good look at the steep karsts along the river.

Chinese Pond-Heron
Chinese Pond-Heron (Ardeola bacchus)

I had seen a few Chinese Pond-heron in the fields and water-ways as I have rode around North Vietnam but this is the first one I have captured in my camera. But it was a bit far away.

As usual there were lots of butterflies around.

This neat little mud nest was in a tree by the river.

And last of all I just managed to get a picture of this Common Woodshrike before the light went completely.
