Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand

Hello there!

My name is Sheikh, and I'm currently a high school junior at Ruamrudee International School. I've just begun to develop an interest in ornithology after having read some of Ernst Mayr's work :)

I'd like to begin bird watching soon this year. It'd be really helpful if somebody could direct me to a thread discussing the basics of birding!

Cheers
Sheikh

Hi Sheikh. Congratulations on taking up the best hobby in the world! You are very lucky in that Thailand has a huge richness and diversity of birds, such richness and diversity that we can only dream of having here in the UK. I've visited 3 times and it's an awesome place for a birder. This BF link is dedicated to Thailand...

Another very useful website too..

Good birding

James
