Trip Report

Day 1: Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary

Rising at dawn we departed from Siem Reap with the 4*4 car along road No 6 and then continued into the dirt road which took us some time to get to the boat. Today, we visited Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary to get our number one target species, Greater Adjutant. We travelled by small boat into the core area of the wildlife sanctuary and we climbed the tree platform. There were a few Greater Adjutants and at least two Milky Storks sitting on the nest in the colony. There were a number of Painted Storks and many Spot-billed Pelicans.

Grey-headed Fish-eagle

Painted Stork


Along both sides of the water channel, there are so many Little, Indian and Great Cormorants, and Oriental Darters.

Grey Heron, Purple Heron, and Chinese Pond Herons are flying and looking for food everywhere. There are also Black-headed Ibises flying and leaving the nesting areas to look for food somewhere. Leaving Prek Toal we continued to Chongkran Roy for an overnight stay there, but in the late afternoon, we visited one of the hides.

Asian Openbill


Day 2 and 3: Changkran Roy

The following day we headed to one of the hides in the Changkran Roy Community. The place is surrounded by a huge semievergreen forest that is perfect for many bird species. We could hear the Banded Broadbill and Common Flameback, and we saw Hainan Blue Flycatcher and Black-naped Monarch. In the evening, we saw Asian Barred Owlet and Brown Boobook and we also heard Oriental Bay Owl too.

Brown Boobook

Red Junglefowl


This morning, we went very early to sit down and wait in one of the hides near our camp. We stayed around a couple of hours patiently while sitting inside the hide we heard so many birds around like Large Scimitar Babbler, Banded Broadbill and we saw White-crested Laughing Thrush, Hainan Blue Flycatcher, Puff-throated Babbler, and Siberian Blue Robin, but of course, we also saw around twenty Asian Emerald Doves feeding around here too.

Before we left for the dragonfly watch, we were so lucky, there were eleven Siamese Firebacks including males and females come to feed right in front of us among many other species at the same time.

Female Siamese Fireback

Male Siamese Fireback


In the afternoon, we spent our time checking the other parts of the forest. Right here we saw Puff-throated Bulbul, Hainan Blue Flycatcher, White-rumped Shama, and a few Red Junglefowl. But it was very special as we saw one male Bar-bellied Pitta moving around our hide and of course we heard the Coral-billed Ground-Cuckoo, which is our main target here and we spent nearly the whole afternoon watching it, but the bird did not show up that day.

The following day, we headed up to the same location as yesterday, but we had no luck with the Coral-billed Ground-Cuckoo, only its call. We then decided to follow the call, and our client could only hear the step moving ahead of him. In the afternoon, we drove back from Chongkran Roy straight to Siem Reap.

Day 4, 5 and 6: Tmat Boey via Bengal Florican Grasslands

Today, we left Siem Reap and we headed up to the sprawling grassland north of Tonle Sap Lake to get our main target, Bengal Florican. While having our breakfast, we saw a male bird in front of us walking along the grass with its head just above the high of the grass. We then continued to see the birds while the other males flew behind us. We were lucky to get perfect conditions to see Bengal Florican and we saw five males. Not far from the Florican place, there was a pool with some tall grass growing around, it was where the White-browed Reed-Warbler, a few of them show off in front of us and gave us the best view ever.

There are many other birds around that place too including, Red Avadavats, Chestnut Munias, Oriental Reed Warblers, and many Asian Green Bee-eaters moving and chasing the dragonfly in the air. Several of the Eastern Marsh-Harriers and Pied Harried scored the grassy savanna and in the sky, the Oriental Skylark flapped the wings up high and sang in the sky. While walking back from the Bengal Florican we flushed the Small Buttonquails and in the sky a few of the Oriental Pratincoles moving over.

Red Avadavat


Moving from the grassland we continued to the Tmatboey area, the community-based eco-tourism where we stayed a few nights for the wonderful Giant Ibis and White-shouldered Ibis. The area is entirely covered by the dry dipterocarp forest which is very special for wildlife especially, ibises and woodpeckers, and many other bird species.

Giant Ibis

White-shouldered Ibis


The wooden cabins are more convenient for the tourists and birders who come to visit this place. Next to the accommodation, there is a bird hide, where birder can spend some time after lunch observing some birds come to the drink or having some fresh fruit, which is provided by the community people. One of the Asian Barred Owlet accidentally came to the waterhole and enjoyed the pool alone while more birds are waiting for their turns.

Asian Barred Owlet

Green Bee-eater


The last morning, we had a long drive to visit the Tmatboey River, which is a very good place to see birds. There, we saw an Orange-breasted Trogon, Violet Cuckoo, Black-and-Buff Woodpecker, Stork-billed Kingfisher, etc.

Red-billed Blue Magpie

Orange-breasted Trogon

Day 7, 8 and 9: Boeng Toal Vulture Restaurant and Okoki

After departure from Tmatboey, we then took a few hours driving to one of the best Vulture Restaurants in Cambodia. This restaurant is created to support the low population of the vultures in Cambodia. During our visit, we saw three different species of Vulture that included the White-rumped Vultures, the Slender-billed Vultures, and the wonderful Red-headed Vulture.

White-rumped Vulture

Red-headed Vulture


In the following days we continued for the Okoki, which was formerly a wonderful place for the White-winged duck, but this year we had no luck sighting this mysterious bird. One night we heard the call of the Blyth’s Frogmouth and we followed it, and due to the trees, there are quite tall so we could only hear it. The forest is amazing, we saw Banded Broadbill, Orange-breasted Pigeon, Indochinese Blue Flycatcher, Banded Kingfisher, etc.

Slender-billed Vulture

Indochinese Bushlark

Day 10: Okoki to Kratie

After finishing the Northern plain of Cambodia we headed along the borders between Cambodia and Laos toward the mighty Mekong River.

Tonight, we are staying in Kratie town, but before we reached the city, we spent a couple of hours looking for the Mekong Wagtail. This late afternoon, we checked the rice paddy fields and scrub and we saw, Chestnut-capped Babbler, Yellow-breasted Prinia, Asian Golden Weaver, and Golden-headed Cisticola before we moved to the hotel.

Yellow-breasted Prinia

Asian Golden Weaver

Day 11, 12 and 13: Kratie to Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary, Mondulkiri

This morning, we were driving to an area where all the tourists who come to visit here usually go for the boat ride to look for the endangered Irrawaddy Dolphin with the small population breeding in the areas. Once we got to the river, the boat driver took us to where the dolphins usually showed up. We saw several of them with a great view. We also saw Mekong Wagtail.

Mekong Wagtail


Leaving Kratie, we continued to Keo Siema Wildlife Sanctuary. This protected area is home to a rich diversity of wildlife, forest type, landscapes, and indigenous community and it is also home to the highest number of species recorded in any protected area in Cambodia.

Apart from the birds, this protected area is home to the world’s largest population of the critically endangered Black-shanked Douc and the endangered Southern Yellow-cheeked Crested Gibbon, Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary (KSWS) harbours globally important populations of both species.

KSWS is a vital wildlife hotspot, a stronghold for 75 species listed as “Globally Threatened” including Sun Bear and Asian Elephant, traces of these animals are frequently encountered. The forest is also home to stunning endemic forest-specialist birds such as the Great Hornbill and Bar-bellied Pitta that attract birdwatchers across the globe.

Great Hornbill

Crimson Sunbird


For the first two nights, we are accommodated in Jahoo Gibbon Camp, tours at Jahoo begin from a unique forest camp, built using local and renewable materials inspired by traditional Buonong building design. Here we saw the Great Hornbill, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Thick-billed Flowerpecker, and Plain Flowerpecker. The forest canopy is home to the critically endangered Black-shanked Douc and the Southern Yellow-cheeked Crested Gibbon. We were able to see both species leaving our camp early and trekking into the forest and listening to their call.

Black-shanked Douc (Mother and Baby)

Fire-breasted Flowerpecker


On the last day of our stay in Mondulkiri Province, we went to visit Dak Dam highland, located in the Southeastern corner of Cambodia on the Sen Monorom plateau. Elevations of over 800 meters can be reached here. Much of the forest has been lost here, but remnants here have produced several more montane species associated with the Annamite Mountains of Vietnam.

We had a chance to see so many beautiful species of the forest bird such as Crimson Sunbird, Fire-breasted Flowerpecker, Kloss’s Leaf-Warbler, both (Klossi and disturbans), Red-vented Barbet, Grey-chinned Minivet, Annam Prinia, Indochinese Barbet, and the Pale-capped Pigeon, at the end we followed to one of the pepper plantations, where we heard the Indochinese Green Magpie and the small cute bird, Annam Prinia.

Thick-billed Green Pigeon

Day 14, 15 and 16: Bokor National Park and Kampot via Cambodian Tailorbird Site

Early departure from Sen Monorom town, and today is a long day travelling, but we managed to stop by a few locations for our breakfast and before we got to the final destination, we stopped by the Cambodian Tailorbird site. Cambodian Tailorbird is only found in the floodplain wetlands where the mighty Mekong River meets the Tonle Sap and Bassac Rivers.

Cambodian Tailorbird


The scrubland on both sides of the road is the main habitat for this little endemic species, and many other birds around here as well, such as the Black-winged Kite then we continued to another Cambodian Tailorbird site and this place is very productive for some migrant species such as Hainan Blue Flycatcher, Forest Wagtail, Yellow-browed Warbler, and Arctic Warbler. Birding around this area is very productive for our group.

Red-headed Trogon

Grey-eyed Bulbul


In the afternoon, we continued for a few hours to the Southwest of Cambodia, Kampot Province. Following the days, we climbed up “Preah Monivong National Park, Bokor Hill”. Bokor National Park is located in the southern coastal region of Cambodia.

Indochinese Green-Magpie

White-tailed Leaf-warbler

Streaked Wren Babbler


As you climb up through the evergreen forest to Bokor National Park, you will start to notice a change in the ecosystem and by the time you reach the top of the escarpment you are in a refreshingly cool, stunted mountain forest, a welcome relief from the steamy- hot lowlands. 

The first two days we visited Bokor mountain, leaving at dawn and driving the car up to the mount next to the waterfall, there is a trail called “Charole” which is a very good one to go through when we moved into that trail, we started to hear the chestnut-headed partridge then two amazing birds walked silently in front of us. There was a call of the Indochinese Green-magpie calling and also the Red-headed Trogon.

The next day, we explore the other trail not very far from the Charole, there we got the Indochinese Green-magpie and Red-headed Trogon, White-tailed Leaf Warbler (intensior), Alstrom’s Warbler, and more.

Northern Pig-tailed Macaque

Black-throated Sunbird


On the last day in the afternoon, we visit the area called “Kep Thmie”, which is nearby the sea and people fill up the sand and make it as a new beach. This place is very good for warder as it is newly out SVC’s site and it attracted so many different shorebirds and waders.

Recently it has become a breeding ground for the White-faced Plover. We spent a few hours here and we saw more birds such as Black-bellied Plover, Kentish Plover, Lesser Sand Plover, Ruddy-turnstones, Red-necked Stints, Chinese Egret, Great-crested Tern, Golden-bellied Gerygone.

White-faced Plover


Day 17 and 18: Pursat Grasslands (Bakan)

This morning, after breakfast at the hotel we depart from Kampot and drove down to the floodplain of Tonle Sap. When we reached our hotel in Pursat Town and during the late afternoon, we went to the Grassland at Bakan.

The floodplain grasslands of Pursat Province support several bird species that are absent from the Florican Grasslands closer to Siem Reap. The Star of the show is the Chinese Grassbird (formerly Rufous-rumped Grassbird), only discovered here in 2013 at this, one of only two sites in Southeast Asia where they’ve been seen in the last 80 years! With a bit of patience and an early start from the hotel, the grassbird is relatively easy to see.

Walking along the rice paddy fields and bush the Chinese Grassbird started the call and in the sky Yellow-breasted Bunting moved over the fields. Not far from the Chinese Grassbird, the muddy field provided the best spot and food for Wood Sandpiper, Common Greenshank, and Oriental Pratincole. Baya Weavers moving from grass to grass and the Black-winged Kite is hovering in the sky.

Yellow-breasted Bunting


On the last day, we departed from Pursat and drove a few hours to Battambang city, where we visit the local market, monastery, and some old French colonial buildings around that area. Finally, we arrived back in Siem Reap town by late afternoon, and the tour is finished.
