There is no good birding site in Ha Noi city, however, if you are able to spend at least one night stay in national park or reserve area, it would be many options:

1. Cuc Phuong national park is one of the best choice in the north, this is nice to stay 1 or 2 nights in Bong substation. Cuc Phuong

2. Tam Dao national park, the hill resort just about 2 hours drive from Ha Noi. You should stay here 2 nights to maximize most wanted species which are Grey Laughingthus, Short-taile Parrotbill, Collared Babbler, Blue-napped Pitta. Tam Dao

3. Ba Vi national park, another hill locates near Ha Noi, which can be connected with Cuc Phuong for 1 night stay. Here, the most highlight is Rufous-cheeked Laughingthrus but also some other species like Collared Treepie, Green Cochoa, Asia Stubtail

Note: Tam Dao and Ba Vi are usually foggy/misty in winter (December - March) but it still good sometimes for birding... we never know weather, it is very unpredictable. These park are also very busy in the weekend, lots people from Ha Noi come here for their holiday or visit temples.

4. Ba Be national park, this site just for serious birder who wants to see the very rare bird (White-eared Night-heron). You need to drive a longish distance, estimate about 7 hours from Ha Noi but it worth to go. Beside White-eared Night-heron, Pied Falconet, Limestone Warbler, White-winged Magpie can be listed as sought-after species.
