Birds of Thailand – Galleries

These galleries contain my own images of birds taken in Thailand. While photography isn’t my main aim when I go out birding, I have tried to continually improve my ‘best pic’ of each species; that said, a few of the pics in this gallery are definitively only ‘record shots‘ – a reminder to better next time! Since 2015 I’ve used a couple of different bridge cameras, including a Nikon P1000, but in December 2021 I finally bit the bullet and dove into the world of real cameras when I bought a Canon EOS 5D and a 100-400m lens.

When taking into account resident species, regular migrants, and vagrants, Thailand’s bird list sits a little over 1000 species – although some of these species are known from single specimens and sightings, or have long since been extirpated – or worse.  As of March 2022, my personal Thai list sits at just over 730 species seen, with the following gallery displaying close to 650 of these species.

The following galleries are generally lumped into like species (with some exceptions) – click on the text links to visit that gallery.
