    Copy Writing Shots?

    Raptors? In Thailand.

    Yes could be the light. My gear is budget and I am just starting out in DSLR bird photography. It was at quite a distance away at about 9am in the morning no cloud cover.

    Two Birds in Thailand need identifying.

    Ok, can confirm it was a Black Naped Oriole I saw, probably a juvenile as Val35 stated. Will keep an eye out in the area I saw it, and try to get a better shot next time.

    Two Birds in Thailand need identifying.

    Thanks Val35, I can now google or look on the local websites for an Oriole, and I think the Shikra is a migratory bird in this area. Will do some more research.

    Two Birds in Thailand need identifying.

    This one was deep inside this tree, so not good on exposure. Yellow plumage with speckled belly. Cannot find in my bird book, its about the size of a parakeet. The second was a raptor that was flying high overhead, believe to be a Shikra Hawk, but can someone confirm.
