  1. For The Birds !

    Send some back my way. Only a few from the thousands remain at Sanambin Buriram.
  2. Bird-friendly Plant ID help.

    Thank you Cooked. I've dloaded more pics from the web and will head off to some nurseries close by.
  3. I stopped overnight at this 'resort' in Chai Prakan, Chiangmai and found several of these 6 to 7 meter tall trees in bloom. The flowers attracted loads of sunbirds as well as other nectar feeding species. Does anyone know the name of this tree and where I could get my hands on some seedlings? A name in Thai would be really great. Thanks.

    I think this is a juvenile Oriental Pratincole captured taking insects on the wing.

  6. Yet another aircond installation question.

    Thanks Steve all duly noted. I'll go get some 6mm2 cable. Yes the CU is just for this new build and will be grounded. The CU pic isn't too clear but of the 8 breakers on the right half I have 2x C16; 3x C20 and 3x C32 breakers. Would this be sufficient for two airconds and 2 hot showers?

  8. I am in the midst of adding a small (2-bdrm) out-building for myself with an extra guest room and have been shown these stuff by the 'builder'. Pls. view pics. Each bedroom has an attached bathroom and will be air-conditioned plus hot water shower. I have been told by the builder everything will be wired to the CU and all will be fine but I have my doubts. The bedrooms are tiny (approx 3m x 3m). Having gone through a few of the older threads I think I'll need 2X dedicated aircond breakers and 2X hot shower breaker. Please advise. Thank you.
  9. How do you get rid of pesky fruit flies?

    Thanks to all your input. They are much tougher to eliminate than house flies yet those Youtube videos made it look so easy. Ah well I guess I'll need to keep all my fruits in the fridge.
  10. I have scoured the internet and the most popular method is apple cider vinegar with a few drops of dish detergent. So I bought a bottle from Makro and set up a few traps around the house where I often see these critters. 2 days passed and nothing's been caught. And they continue to buzz everywhere. I give up! How do you guys tackle this problem?
  11. For The Birds !

    Cool shot thetefldon! Strange! I was at Suan Rot Fai a week ago and there wasn't a single heron nor egret around. Walked the entire grounds including Queen Sirikit park only to see a few common birds. Best was a nesting Coppersmith Barbet poking its head out from a hole in a dead tree trunk.
  12. Yes Crossy it was taken on my concrete driveway in auto mode on my cellphone. Sky was overcast this morning. Here's another shot.
  13. Had this one resting next to my rice cooker on top of a table this morning. Managed to coax it onto a dust pan and released it in the backyard. Only a tiny one not more than 18 inches and possibly driven indoors by the rain. Anyone knows what it is?
  14. I just got my first ever cordless drill and in the 'free' kit were two bit holders which I haven't a clue what the use might be. There is a coil spring tucked inside along with what appears to be a 'tabbed washer' on the other end. Dimensions: 14mm diameter (external) and about 28.5mm height. No description in owner's manual. Thanks for help.
