Birds in Myanmar

This was not a full-time birding trip, my teaching mission for the Wetland Ecology Training Course in Mekong Basin, however I was luckily to stay at the Yezin Agricultural University Guesthouse where surrounded by wood-trees and good habitat for 2 endemics, the Burmese Bushlark and White-throated Babbler. I also had a chance to visit Inle lake where all participants took their field practices/research on wetlands. Here and on the traveling ways, I gain more lifers which were including White-throated Laughingthrus, Blue-throated Barbet, Grey Sibia and especially Jerdon's Bushchat.

Spoon-billed Sandpiper in Mekong delta

I had wanted to see the Spoon-billed Sandpiper for many years. I had been disappointed when I had visited Hong Kong’s Mai Po reserve a few years ago not to see them. As in many other of their former wintering and stop over migration places now, numbers of this species are critically low and development of their mud habitat is such that they are one of the most threatened birds on the planet. There may be less than 300 hundred left, and I so wanted to see one before they became extinct.
