North Thailand Birding went live in September 2011. This website is an on-going project, initiated back in October 2009 when photographs were first taken and localities first visited. Information, photos, scope and detailed coverage are being updated and expanded continually. For some sections this will be a lengthy process - especially locality information and maps - as time in the field has priority over sitting at a computer!
Planned expansion includes more localities and checklists, plus a Reptile checklist. Longer term, additional photo galleries will be added to include dragonflies and damsel flies, insects, reptiles and amphibians.
