Leaf Warblers, Khao Lak, Western Pen, Thailand (1 Viewer)


Just an earthbound misfit
January. These warblers feeding high in a tree outside our hotel room every day of our 2 week stay. They were always high up and back-lit so photos are poor. I have cropped and lightened the shots. Arctic, Two-barred, Pale legged leaf, Eastern Crowned and Yellow-browed are all in range but I am not sure the pics are good enough for a safe ID. Never heard any song. Each pic in the same tree but at different times so may not be the same individuals but likely I think to be the same species.

Any ideas?

cheers, alan

I'm not a "Thai expert" but I would agree that the bird in the middle two images looks like Two-barred. The bird in the 4th image gives me more of an Arctic feel, though. Not sure about no.1 - Arctic again?

A tricky set of images unfortunately. I agree that they seem to be Two-barred/Arctic, but difficult to be sure on ID from these pics.
