  • Hi Par,

     
    I hope this finds you well. I just got back home from Malaysia. I wanted to tell you how much my group enjoyed the Thailand tour you put together for them - it was a great success! (1-10 March 2016 Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Kaeng Krachan, Khao Yai, Saraburi ) Personally, I thought it was one of the very best organised trips I have been on in a long time - great accommodations and super guiding from yourself, so many thanks for that. We all thought that "Mr. Smith" and yourself made a really great team and your efforts to find some of the more difficult birds for us was second to none. I really hope that we can work together on more tours in the near future. In the meanwhile I will not hesitate to send anyone who wants to bird in Thailand your way. I wish you all the very best with Wild Bird Eco and your own exploits.
     
    We'll stay in touch…
     
    Cheers,

  • Par,
     
    Mark and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip in Thailand visiting Pak Thale, Kaeng Krachan and Khao Yai. The birding was fantanstic, and we got to see our target birds, including the spoon-billed sandpiper, hornbills and broadbills. The food was also great and you and Ton were the perfect guide and driver.
    Mark has put the best of his photos online (and let us know if the link does not work).

  • Hi Par
     
    I wanted to write you to thank Pank and you for this unforgettable trip one more time. We lived an experience rich in events. I’m sure that now my daughters have a new way of apprehending holidays. For the moment, Marie and Cilia are at their grandmother's home and it was a true happiness to hear them telling this trip in Thailand.
     
    I think that you will post some photos of our trip on your website. I agree for that but we would like to choose the photos of us that you want to use. As Pank gave to me his memory cards, I can suggest you some photos. What do you think about that?
     
    To finish, I don’t know when we will come back but I’m sure that one day, you and us, we shall go to Kaeng Krachan NP or somewhere else in February. Don’t forget to give us your news from time to time. And make the most of life!

    Now there is no more problem we can open the web site again.
    You finish the trip report of our tour, very nice J !

    Our excursion to Khao Yai with Par was the highlight of an already wonderful trip.
    Par was knowledgeable and a joy to bird with.
     
    Accommodations were comfortable and pleasant. We've birded around the world and this trip was one of the best.
    Par's skill and commitment to finding even the shyest of species was admirable and payed off. Worth every penny.

    Hi Par 

    I wanted to let you know I had a great trip in Thailand. Right from the start, my guide Dteng was on time and we got a long great the rest of the trip. I got many good pictures of many beautiful species of birds, as well as many beautiful areas of Thailand. We ended up with 230 species, which is great, so I was pleased with Dtengs knowledge as well as his effort to get the birds. I also want to say thanks to Dui whom was a great driver. The whole tour was well planned and each birding stop was great. I think the wildbirdecotour is a very professional bird tour company, and I appreciate this in picking a tour company. I would love to come back and take another tour with Wildbirdecotour.
     
    Thanks so much,
    and Happy Birding

  • Dear Chintana,
    "My two days spent birding with Chintana and her driver included some of the most enjoyable time I've ever spent in the field. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of the local birds is extensive. We found nearly all of our target species between Chiang Dao and Doi Inthanon. The highlight of my trip was the lucky appearance of two Black-Tailed Crakes which brought tears to my eyes. "
    Sincerely, Mark Agnor Chicago
  • Dear Chintana,
    "We'd love to thank you for the wonderful days in Doi Inthanon and Chiang Dao. You were a great guide, not only a passionate birder but also one of the most all-round guides we've met!
    Chintana, once again thank you for the great birding days together. You could really notice birding is one of the things you love to do. Also many thanks for the other lessons you 'teached' us on the road or during meals (when we were not distracted by all the birds and other animals ;-) )concerning history, culture and much more"
    From: Hanneke and Ties The Netherlands.
  • Dear Chintana,
    "Chintana is a superb birding guide: knowledgeable, energetic, patient, intelligent, positive, inquisitive and comfortable. She is thoroughly acquainted with all of the birds, their calls, plumage variations, habitat, distribution and behavior. I learned to appreciate her excellent eyes and ears, often locating birds that I hadn't suspected were near us. Chintana is a teacher at heart, always making sure to point out the key points of identification, comparing   a bird to others that might be similar, and repeating its name. We did a good deal of walking, and as we did, she continually called out the names of birds we were seeing, even if they had been seen well before. We never moved on until     I had an opportunity to see the bird well. The pace was relaxed and thorough. "
    From: Gene Bauer Northfield, Minnesota
  • Hi Pat.                                                thanks for the great trip. we got your snipe pictures, they are great.  We did not get your pictures of the owl's.

  • A Day Trip Doi Chiang Dao 12th May 2016                  
    Khun Sasirat,


    The trip was wonderful!!!! Khru Somchart was a fun guide. A member said that Khru Chart was the best guide at using the scope, that they have ever met (and they have done birdwatching all over the world). We all loved him. His English explanations were clear. He always identified the birds correctly. Also, he was flexible with our needs, and happy to change locations whenever we wanted.

    The driver was very good too.

    Thanks so much. We will recommend this to any birders. I got 10 new birds on my life list, which is amazing to me.

    Thank you again!!!!!
    Wendy (Birdgirl) Chamberlain,
  • Dear Panuwat                                We compleated our trip with guide Mr.Kampol  driver Mr. Pongpat yesterday and I must say that they were both excellent.We are extremly satisfied with our trip and would recommend your company to anyone requiring a bird watching trip in Thailand.Apart from his excellent knowledge of the birds, Mr Kampol has a wealth of knowledge of all of Thailands natural history.Once again thank you very much.                               Kind regards                               Peter Kemp from Scotland  
  • Dear Mr Sasirat,

    Thank you so much for providing me with Mr Kampol - He must be the world's best bird guide! I didn't notice the time as Tui was so enthusiastic and energetic, finding a new bird for me to see every minute or so so it seemed. I saw 76 species and heard 2 more but they stayed hiding!
    Another plus was that I got to see a lot of Bangkok that I would not have seen. So that was special too.

    I do hope I get the chance to do birding in Thailand again.

    Thank you again for a truly memorable experience

    Sincerely
    Cheryl Warburton
    A Day Trip 19th Nov. 2016
  • Dear Mr.Sasirat,

    this trip was very well. I have seen during this trip a lot of view of new birds for me.
    I regret not having spent more time at Kaeng Krachan. the stay in Mae Wong was the most interesting with the too short lookout Kang Krachan. the last day to the lake was less interesting because of lack of water.

    the driver and the guide have a great knowledge of birds of Thailland. Very good.
    the vehicle is very good. no problem with the food or hotel.
    I regret that Mr Tui, the guide, is not sent me the list of species observed because I have a hard time finding some names.
    I have not yet addressed and treated all the photos but I diffused daily since my return a species on facebook and in my website www.ornitho.photos



    it's a very good trip for me.
    Best regards,
    Gilles adt
