    Bronze-winged Jacana cooling off in the heat.

    Activity in the Middle of a Lake.

    If it is just a 'pond' without mountain streams feeding into it then I doubt it would support Kasoob as they require fairly good quality water to thrive. But your account does seem to suggest bait fish being preyed upon.

    Activity in the Middle of a Lake.

    Just returned from another fishing trip to Khao Laem and I witnessed many times schools of Hampala Barb (locally known as Kasoob) attacking bait fish on the surface. The entire frenzy lasts less than a minute and if you're within casting range you're almost assured of a hookup. I am keen to know whereabouts your lake is.

    They are frequently mixed with other munia species in cages at pet shops or flea markets. My guess they are bought for release to make merit since they don't sing.

    Good to see this not in a cage.

    Thanks for the heads up. Will surely pay a visit when next in the area.

    That would be a great spot to capture some action images. Any idea the exact location in chanthaburi?

    I did see it circle and then dived a couple of times amongst the reeds/vegetation but was unable to make out what it captured or maybe it failed on those occasions.

    I sighted this bird with a deformed leg on two different visits. It likes to hunt near a gazebo where I shoot from. Location: Sanambin non-hunting area Burirum.

    Birds in your garden

    Dollarbird. Not exactly from my garden but from a lake about 3km from my residence. This lake adjoins Thap Lan NP. I saw about 5 or 6 of these in flight but not in formation and they did several circuits around a bay where I was seeking refuge from the heat. Also saw 3 unidentified Needle-tailed swifts but they were way too fast for me.

    Looks to me like some kind of starling. Was this physically sized like a mynah? My guess is chestnut-tailed starling. Someone more knowledgeable would come along soon. Oh btw., where's samuijimmy haven't seen him around for a while.
