10 Most Wanted Birds in Thailand
Number 8: Long-tailed Broadbill Psarisomus dalhousiae

Like something from a Disney cartoon, the striking colours of Long-tailed Broadbill can hardly fail to impress as one flicks through Robson's Field Guide to the Birds of Thailand or Lekagul & Round's Guide to the Birds of Thailand in preparation for ones first birding trip to Thailand.

Most birders with Long-tailed Broadbill on their target list won't be disappointed as it is certainly the most common bird amongst the top ten most wanted birds of Thailand. Fairly common in broadleaved evergreen forest in much of Thailand, Long-tailed Broadbill often travels in small flocks, but can be rather shy. However, such is the range and abundance of this species that any birders including the ever popular national parks of Kaeng Krachan, Khao Yai, Doi Inthanon, Doi Chiang Dao and Doi Ang Kang will almost certainly be treated to at least one sighting of Long-tailed Broadbill.
