Looks like a mantidfly species - order Neuroptera. Awesome little insects.
I come across them in Thailand from time to time.

Thanks to all for the help. I originally didn't think Radde's because of the lack of colour on the undertail coverts, but I guess I should've also been looking at other features as well.

Thanks also...

Thanks again, Grahame!

I guess among other things, the barring on the underside seen on the 2nd pic point towards Jerdon's, not to mention the different wing shape.

Cheers!!

Thanks greatly for the ID tips, Grahame.

On first sighting the bird I though YB Warbler, but I'm never confident with phyllocs.

Raptors, Southern Thailand, April '18.

Hi all,

My initial thoughts on these two birds are that they are both OHBs. The first bird (first 3 pics) was seen at Krung Ching, Nakhon Si Thammarat province and my thoughts were that it is a dark...

Hi Byron,

Sorry, I should've been clearer. No, he only meant the bird in flight. He said from the two pics where the bird is on the ground, an ID cannot really be made - need to see under the...

Just looking to see whether this is a Plain-tailed Warbler. Though not visible from these pics, it appeared to have a greyish crown.
