I birded Cat Tien before (also three days), and I hired Mr Duyen. He's a great local guide, and his rates are very reasonable. You might want to phone ahead to make sure he's available.

Thanks Nutcracker, but why don't the other birds do that too? I mean especially the Blue Tits and Great Tits which seem to be around all day. Does that mean they're outside their territory, or is it...

Thanks Delia. I think you're spot on. I'm in Ireland now, Nutcracker.
I agree with Delia that it could be a matter of time, although they've certainly had a go (not often) at another feeder (with...

Chaffinches

I've had success attracting a few birds to a feeder I've put up, including Blue Tits, Great Tits, Coal Tits and Goldfinches. However, the Chaffinches just don't seem to be able to work out how to use...

Just for the record, I did not end up seeing any of my target birds there. I tried Viikki but the best I saw there were a bunch of jays. That place is devoid of birds!

Thank you Sangahyando for the valuable info. I've birded in Germany before and never seen a Red Kite; I suppose I didn't go to the right area. I'll have to try again. 8-P

I don't know how feasible or suitable the following suggestion might be for you, but if you're going to be in that area, consider birding with Mark Stackhouse. He lives in San Blas (close enough to...

Thanks for the advice, Dave. I was thinking of the L series 70-300; I presume it has better IQ than the DO version, am I right? I suppose 25% extra reach is significant, but I wonder if the 70-300...

How is that cheap? I think it's a total rip off! In fact, it's a double rip off because it's putting a "tax" on top of the entry fee which in itself is a tax!

Thanks for the info.
I must say that I find it unconscionable to kill something just to be able to say that you've seen it; "absolute certainty" or not!

Imagine if we did that with birds! ;)
