Discovered in 2012, described in 2013 and
endemic to Cambodia, we were the first tour
company to see this species, that can be found
just 15 minutes from the capital, Phnom Penh!
This eastern Indochinese endemic is one
of the easier pittas to locate, and we've had
exceptional views on our Vietnam tours.
This recently described species can be found
on a pleasant boat ride along the Mekong
as Irawaddy Dolphins swin alongside us.
Discovered as recently as 1996; we
have seen this species on all our Vietnam tours
to the central highlands.
This bizarre, vocal tiny raptor is one
of several species confined to the dry
dipterocarp forest found only in northern Indochina.
This critically endangered mega is now only
known from the northern plains of Cambodia.
Discovered in 1996, and endemic to a small
area of central Vietnam and Laos, this
beautiful songster typifies Birdtour Asia tours,
we were the first to include it in our
itinerary, and despite its shyness, never miss it.
A limestone karst-feeding oddity, that feeds
by peering into small, dark crevices in
search of spiders. Restricted to the Annamite
mountains of Vietnam and Laos.
For once, an easy laughingthrush! Found in
Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, this bird roves
around in large groups, though even this
is declining due to the bird trade.
It might only be another dull fulvetta,
but this cool little bird is only found on the
highest mountains in Vietnam and Laos, and is
included in our Vietnam itinerary.
