  • The elusive Blue-naped Pitta is one of the most difficult bird to see and photograph. In Vietnam, the only reliable site to see is Tam Dao national park which locates not far from Noi Bai airport. We have a temporary feeding station so that you can have good chance to photograph this bird if weather is good. In addtional, Cuc Phuong national park is home to 3 other pitta-species, the Bar-bellied and Blue-rumped Pitta are trained succesfully for taking pictures. Eared Pitta is difficult and we are stil working on it.

    Beside pittas, there are number of interest species have been shown up at our feeding stations including Grey Laughingthrush, Streak-breasted Scimitar babbler, Limestone Wren Babbler, Japanese Robin, Fujian Niltava, etc. 

    Walking along the trail, you also might encounter Short-tailed Parrotbil, Indochinese Green Magpie, Red-collared Woodpecker, Pied Falconet, White-winged Magpie, Rachet-tailed Treepie, Collared Babbler.
