Malaysian Rail Babbler
7-MAY-09 Peter Ericsson

Malaysian Rail Babbler

Krung Ching, Nakorn Srithamarat

For years I have dreamed of seeing this bird. Knowing the potential of an encounter with it made the 900 kilometer drive seem bearable. It took two days of hard work to locate the bird but finally it happened!

Thank you to Mr Narong for sharing his sighting and help to find it.
Thank you to Ah and Daeng, park rangers, who worked equally hard in search of the elusive Babbler.
Thank you to Alex Vargas who graciously let me use his part of the blind when I was obstructed by a blind in front of me.
Thank you to my family who let me go.
Thank you to God who made it all come together and supplied all my needs.

Cool Peter, I'm glad that giving you the blind was worth and productive...
It was fun sharing, thanks!
