Kaeng Krachan Bird Watching

Nestled on the western brink of the country four-hours  drive from Bangkok is a wilderness unparalleled for its
rich diversity of birds, large mammals and flora. Kaeng  Krachan is Thailand's largest national park (2,914 sq km)  and part of a continuous forest  complex covering
 30,000 sq km of land spanning the border with Myanmar.  The  park lies at the junction of biogeographic zones so  biodiversity in the area is a mix of  Indo-Burmese and  Malaysian forms.

At middle and higher elevations in the forest, two major watersheds fed by the  Petchaburi and Pranburi Rivers support wildlife. In the lowlands beyond the forest, they  sustain agricultural activities. The waterways turn from trickles at their sources to  raging water columns in mid-course, to gentle meandering wide streams in the lowlands.  Along these waterways lie mineral licks and wallows fed by smaller forest streams where  a plethora of fauna including Fea's barking deer, Tapir, Asian elephant come to feed.  Tiger, Asiatic leopard, and wild dog lurk along trails leading to the mineral licks waiting  for these prey species to emerge in the dead of night. Endangered Siamese crocodile  nest along the banks of the Petchburi River. The Banded leaf monkey is also commonly  seen

Spanning altitudes ranging from 300 to 1,513m, Kaeng  Krachan hosts a diversity of vegetation and is home to a  rich bird fauna. Over 400 species are recorded, including  the rare Ratchet-tailed treepie, found nowhere else in  Thailand. Yellow-vented and White-bellied Pigeons, Grey  Peacock Pheasant, six species of hornbill and seven kinds  of broadbill are also present.
