  Bird Watching Trips:
If you need help organizing a bird watching trip to Thailand, take a look at the suggested itineraries for ideas on creating a tailor-made trip or day out and contact me for advice: Thailand bird tours.
All of the bird checklists featured on this website have been compiled from my personal records and include species that I know that other reliable observers have recorded from the sites concerned. Species that are of doubtful occurence, or are known from records that are yet to be confirmed by the Thai records committe have been avoided.
In each checklist the species are listed as in the taxonomic order used in the edition of the official Thai checklist as issued by the Thai records committee that was current at the time of creating the list. Keeping the checklists up-to-date with current taxanomic order is far too time-consuming given the rate at which the taxonmic orders are revised.

The checklists can be read straight from the website but they are also available to download as a word document with check boxes for ticking what you see on your trip to Thailand.

I have done my best to compile checklists that are as complete as I can possibly make them and in most cases they include all of the more commonly seen birds for each location.

There are undoubtedly many species to add to these lists and I only include them to give birders an idea of what to expect to see when visiting each location, and to encourage the submission of records on completion of the trip. I would welcome additions to the lists so that I can offer them in more complete form in the future:
