Birding in Thailand – What You Can Expect

Thailand has a lot of birds you can spot. Krabi has its fair share. The state of birding in the country has not evolved to the point of say Costa Rica, Canada, the USA, or the UK. Thais just don’t seem to have the interest that people from other countries do.

Because of this, it’s difficult to find local guides who know birds – or anyone who does. Knowledge often trickles down from guides that are obsessed with birding, right? Here – we don’t have that. Even us, we’re desperately trying to learn all the different birds, it is a long process.

Recently, we lost our top birder who was Thai and could speak English well enough to get a lot of the names of birds across to people on the field trips. We are trying to replace him, but it may take a. while. In the meantime, we have people who know where birds are and who can put you on all kinds of birds.

For many of you, that’s what you really need. For others, beginners who don’t know the names of any birds and who could use a very knowledgeable English-speaking guide, you may not get all you need.

The friends we have that do these trips try very hard to find the birds for you so you can get photos and videos. Identification will largely be left up to you. However, we do have a FB group that can identify birds for you. We also use the Cornell Bird ID app which identifies birds by their call. We have the Thailand and Southeast Asia packs installed.

Good Locations to Find Birds in Krabi?

Here we made a page to show you the best places you can go yourself to find birds in Krabi.

Longtail Boat Bird Tour Through Mangroves – This is one of our ultimate birding trip, the one where you will see the most species of birds and the one that also offers glimpses of other wildlife in the mangroves like gliding lizards, mangrove pit viper snakes, and other cool stuff, even monkeys sometimes. An excellent trip you can choose for an hour up to 3 hours.

Khao Sok Bird Tour – a full day of bird watching as we tour the grounds of one of Thailand’s most stunning National Parks in the Surat Thani province.

We’ll be adding other bird tours to our site here as we learn more about where the best birds are to be found. In all honesty, we are not bird experts – and you’ll have to bring your expertise with you! We are learning, and we do know some good places to see birds. We’ll do our part – maybe you can teach us something about the birds we find.
