Bird call - Bang Po in Bangkok (1 Viewer)

Dear members and bird watchers

I was in Bang Po this morning. I spotted a bird in top of the tree and my first thought was a White-rumped Shama, but the call is not the same and I never seen a Shama in top of a tree before.


The bird had a long tail and there was a flash of brown on top of the wings, but the bird was between me and the sun so it was all shadow.

Anyone recognizing the bird call? Sounds almost like a crow bird

Kind regards and happy birding
Aladdin

Do not recognise the sound, and am not enough know to all the possibilities in Thailand, but your suggestions to look among the pies might work. Can also not exclude parakeet, maybe one with bit shorter moulting tail.

Maybe a treepie, though I can't find a recording that sounds exactly like that. According to eBird, it should be Rufous treepie if it is a treepie.

Thanks all!

I have looked in my book Birds of Thailand and South East Asia and I have checked every bird I think look like the bird I saw with Zeno-Canto but so far nothing. No treepies I have tried have fit

I will try to get down to Bang Pu tomorrow morning again to look for the bird

Kind regards and happy birding

I think not Seth, Racket-tailed is the only Treepie at Bang Pu, and in the Greater Bangkok area for that matter although escaped Rufous is a possibility.

Racket-tailed Treepie is quite common at Bang Pu, and they have a variety of vocalizations. And long-tailed and dark (brown) maybe fit the description better.

Where at Bang Pu did you see it?

Sure. I didn't know status of treepies in Bangkok. Thanks for clarifying. :)

Not sure why, but for some reason Racket-tailed didn't cross my mind. Oops.
