Trip Report

Day 1: Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary

An exciting first day tour started from Siem Reap City traveled to Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary. We departed Siem Reap at 5AM and travelled around 45 minutes to arrive Mechrey Ferry with our packed breakfast, hot coffee and seasonal fresh fruit on the boat. Prek Toal is the largest floating village located in Battambang Province with beautiful floating houses. We spent full morning watching birds on the wooden platform. There was still alot of fog covering sprawling nests area and it took a little while for searching with binoculars and telescope but we finally saw one Milky Stork stood among thousands in large flocks of Painted Stork, Cormorants Sp and Asian Openbill while other Oriental Darter were feeding chicks in the nest. Other flocks were soaring and gliding above our heads and that was when we got one Greater Adjutant that was standing on top of a far-tree with approximately 15 Lesser Adjutants sitting on tree closer to platform with many vocalization of Yellow-bellied Prinia, Pin-striped Babbler, Dusky Warbler, great view of Gray-headed Fish-eagle and Olive-backed Sunbird….etc.

After spending few hours birding, we returned to the Floating Village for our lunch at Saray Community where we work closely with people living in village then headed back to Siem Reap for ending this first exciting day trip.

Day 2: Siem Reap to Tmat Boey via Bengal Florican Grassland

Following day visited sprawling grassland in Northern of Tonle Sab Lake to find our tree target birds; Begnal Florican, Manchurian Reed-warbler and Blue-breasted Quail. 

We arrived to the field first started our breakfast box close to pond where surrounded by grass that associated with tall grass where the home to the stunning of Manchurian Reed-warbler and Bustard, our breakfast was cut short by a male Bengal Florican that was foraging maybe 100 meters from our position. It was hunkered down behind grass, can’t wait to walk closer then it flushes to fly off the ground overhead two times but we were calm not continue disturb it, so we came back to car parking then 15 meters second surprising bird was calling and moving in the tall grass where we got stunning view close up of single Manchurian Reed Warbler. An enigmatic one that we must walk through the grass and stubbles in order to flush it flies, we made almost 100 meters walk with our local guide as an expectation a Blue-breasted Quail flushed in flight across our walking this was the third lifer at the Grassland for today. 

We also got to see many other nice species in our casual birding within this morning like: Oriental Skylark sang with many Oriental Pratincole took time in skies as well as Eastern-marsh Harrier and Pied Harrier were in flight low above grass to hunt its prey, back in car moving slow with a stunning view of Grey Bushchat come across while a Small Buttonquail was running out quickly away from car road with a flock of Little egret feeding in small waterhole while a Common Greenshank catching it prey on the edge of waterhole with some Australasian Bushlarks above head and Blue-tailed Bee-eater enjoy on the low bushes along verdant view. 

We departed the grassland moving north to dry deciduous forest with a stop for lunch en route. We arrived to the home of Giant Ibis and White-shouldered Ibis in the afternoon and continued trekking to find birds. Just 15 minutes away from Tmat Boey lodge, we were surprised to see a stunning view of a White-shouldered Ibis that was feeding in waterhole close to the path and offered a great view from inside car. We then decided to move forward into forest to see two of Black-headed Woodpecker jumped on tree stump to another, nice view of two Indochinese Cuckoo-shrike while a flock of Small Minivets moving on tree, we casually until evening then back to lodge for our local cooking dinner. 

Day 3: Tmat Boey 

We left early at 5AM with packing rice box, bottle of hot coffee with some fruits headed to Savannah and Rice field in forest where look of Giant Ibis foraging on the ground. Just off the trail we saw a single White-shouldered Ibis sat on the atop bared tree open to field. Suddenly there was 11 stunning White-shouldered Ibis in flight overhead where we were waiting at the waterhole. We continued to explore other waterhole along casual birding trails and two beautiful Common Flameback pick up insect in tree trunk while two Black-headed Woodpecker flied off from tree nearby, passing three ponds in forest but no luck sighting Giant Ibis yet, but we spotted three Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrike with two Red Junglefowl and Greater Coucal jumping into bush. However, we saw many Grey-breasted Prinia, Brown Prinia, Crested Serpent Eagles, Greater Flamebacks, some other migrants and common species.

Temperature started to get very hot at around 10AM, so we returned to the Lodge for lunch and rest until we leave again in afternoon and continue birding. We drove approx. 15 minutes north of Lodge directly to check the nesting tree. We spent time in the hide where we first saw a baby extends its neck out seems just like getting more breath air, an gorgeous White-browed Fantail hunkering in the nest near our hide. We also heard Banded Bay Cuckoo calling above head while some Lineated Barbet perching on tree with three of Rufous-winged Buzzards soaring above tree nearby, we moved to other place and spotted a male and a female of White-rumped Pygmy Falcon perched on tree with two Velvet-fronted Nuthatch, Golden-fronted Leaf Bird and Purple Sunbirds that sharing same flower tree

Day 4: Tmat Boey to Boeng Toal Vulture Restaurant 

This morning we left the lodge at 4:30AM for an hour to Steung River where it is verdant semi-evergreen and bamboo forest. We moved into the forest and stayed on the river edge quietly for a good spot where we can get a great view of some bird in flight. We got view of a flock of Green Imperial Pigeons perched atop of tall tree with Stork-billed Kingfisher calling and flying across. Likewise we saw 3 Greater-racket Tailed-drongo around, a group of male of Van Hasselt’s Sunbird jumping in lower bushes with a couple Indochinese Blue Flycatchers in the vine bushes but poor visability, brilliant perched Hainan-blue Flycatcher while two White-rumped Shama sat on behind on the vine, gorgeous Dusky Warbler moving lower by the river edge with a flock squabble Abbott’s Babbler on the ground.

Whilst heading back to the car, a flock of 7 Racket-tailed Treepie were squabbling atop of bamboo tree as well as Hair-crested Drongo picking up prey in flower tree when Bright-headed Cisticola sat with singing nearby us. 9AM we left Steung River and headed back to Tmat Boey Lodge as planned to travel off to Tbeng Meanchey City and moved further north to Beong Toal Vulture Restaurant where we will spend an overnight camping.

We arrived at Camp spot at 2PM and this afternoon walked around with a quick check at the hide that prepares the carcass for the vultures. Whilst trekking on the trail suddenly two Eurasian Hoopoe flied off the ground and Ashy Drongo swooped around for its prey while Common Flameback pecked up on the tree skins with brilliant Brown Prinia and Grey-breasted Prinias playing its call in tall grass. We moved closer to the hide then spotted White-rumped Vulture sat on the bared branches staring at carcass spot. We moved into the semi-evergreen on other side spotted a couple of Amur-paradise Flycatcher and a flock in courtship of Scaly-crowned Babbler were on the ground, we trailed out to the pond saw White-throated Kingfisher with Amur Stonechat with 3 Bonze Drongo moved atop of tree farther, then back to the camp for an overnight.

Day 5: Boeng Toal Vulture Restaurant to Kratie

We unexpectingly experienced heavy rain for almost an hour. We took a walk to the hide before dawn and sat down with some bananas and hot coffee waiting for the vultures to land at the carcass. Our two species appeared to land next to the cow carcass including 2 Red-headed Vultures and White-rumped Vulture. At same time there were many little Green Bea-eater, Scaly-breasted Munia, Vinous-breasted Starling, Large-billed Crow, Burmese Shrike, Brown Shrike, Small Minivet, Scarlet Minivet, Black-collared Starling while some species were calling around like; Great Slaty Woodpecker, Black-headed Woodpecker, Grey-caped Pygmy Woodpecker. 

We spent time until 8AM to get back for our breakfast at the camp spot then left for Kratie Province. In the afternoon, we got checked in at the hotel then continued to the rice fields and spotted several Thick-billed Warbler along massive lotus pond while Lanceolated Warbler jumped off bush near water and grass with a flock of Grey-headed Swamphen. Some little cormorants perched on low bared branches with mixed flock of White-rumped Munia and Scaly-breasted Munia while migrant Black Drongo admired daily during Olive-backed Sunbird, Zitting Cisticola, 2 females Golden Weavers appeared on tree in the rice field.

Day 6: Kratie to Kampong Spue via Cambodian Tailorbird Grasslands

Checked out the hotel early and had chicken rice as breakfast with hot coffee. We then headed to the ferry where we spent full pleasant morning with gorgeous Mekong Wagtail came up on the branches of the central river then quick perched and then moved away to other island but another replacement landed on a small rock island in front of boat that conveniant enough for us to stand in shallow water for a photograph. Grey Heron foraging on the sand looking for prey as well as Great Myna came overhead across river and Common Sandpiper ran on the sand island. This was when we saw the endangered Irrawaddy DolphinOrcaella Brevirostris, at less 4 of them swimming around with some heading up sometime to take a breath.

We then left Kratie and headed south for a stop en route for meal then moved toward to spot the endemic species on the outskirt of the capital city of Phnom Penh in the single dense shrubs and floodplain. A couple Cambodian TailorbirdOrthotomus chaktomuk came to us for some photos. After that, we travelled to Kampong Speu Province where we spent an overnight at a homestay in Sre Kinbie Village. So we were forced to leave this little gorgeous songbird.

Day 7: Aural Mountain

This morning we awoke to a very wet Cambodia with heavy railfall during the night. We took a Koyun (two-wheels Tractor with tail) for 60 minutes out of village headed up to the foothill for climbing up to Aural Mt. for our last three days and two nights camping at 1200 elevation. We hoped to find our endemic species that inhabit and occur only here, trekking hard and slow with casual birding and listening to many vocalizations with some stops. We first saw a Little Spiderhunter swooped on beside us during some admired calls of Moustache Barbet while Cambodian Flowerpecker pecking flower on the tree branches above trail at Camping 1 spot. 2 Blue-winged Leafbird came to the green leaf tree with 3 Black-crested Bulbul perched on bamboo branches below it, a single songbird jumped lower with long singing as well as 3 Scarlet Minivet moved height up on the tree nearby the stop, a couple massive steady wings beat sound of stunning Wreathed Hornbill came along with Yellow-bellied Warbler and several Blue-winged Leafbird sat with beautiful loud song.

We reached Camp 2 spot at afternoon and continued birding. After long persistent searching along trail up and beside gradients we found several Lesser racket-tail Drongo and heard as if exhausted sang of Chestnut-headed Partridge from two different locations but no luck for sighting. Instead saw  a flock of Streak-wren Babbler moved on the ground with 4 stunning Silver-breasted Broadbill perched frozen on branches and sang from three difference places. We also saw Blue Pitta on the trail back to Camp 2 with excellent spotted a single Collared Owlet perched and sang quite low and vocalize nearby of Banded Kingfisher. As dawn fast approached, we went back for dinner with dried fish and tuna fish with rice prepared for us. Late evening we got great view of Mountain Scops Owl just perched right nearby the Camp 2 before good night.

Day 8: Aural Mountain

Next morning, we woke to local breakfast and hot coffee served. When there was enough light we started trekking along the slops where a flock of Cambodian Laughingthrush appeared with Lesser Necklaced Laughingthrush singing out loud and jumping nearby us along with songs of Blue Pitta and Chestnut-headed Partridge but still no clear view. We then saw a single Indochinese-Blue Magpie with a stunning Green-billed Malkoha with Lesser-racket Tail-drongo. We then turned back to Camp 2 for lunch and saw three lovely Hum’s White-eye moved and pecked insect atop while White-throated Rock-thrush and Orange-headed Thrush perched on the broken branches beside camping roof. 2 Mountain Imperial-pigeon jumped height up on fruit tree.

In the afternoon, we moved down close to the stream and searched for birds and 2 Davison’s Leaf Warbler sang, poorly seen Green Cochoa and some White-bellied Erpornis, very common Grey-headed Canary-flycatcher, Grey-chinned Minivet, Blyth’s shrike-babbler, Long-tailed Broadbill, Bronze drongo, White-browed Scimita-babbler, Velvet-fronted Nuthatch, Black-throated Sunbird, Grey-eyed Bulbul, Mountain Bulbul, heard some Great Hornbill.

Day 9: Aural Mountain to Phnom Penh

Last day, we left camp early at 5:30AM to decent Aural Mountain. We went slowly and carefully along ket birding trails. We spotted again Cambodian Flowerpecker, Scarlet Minivet, some Himalayan Swiftlet and heard again Chestnut-headed Partridge as well as Wreathed Hornbill that always came overhead above forest. We did not pay much birding as we had time limited to get to Phnom Penh to prepare for flight out of Cambodia.

I had great time birding for 9 days’ trip and we have seen most of our target species including migrant and resident in Cambodia and riches of biodiversity and wildlife. It’s more than just bird watching as I never cease of learning and sharing all related news of nature and wildlife while meeting with many other local people, especially experiencing bird taxonomy changes/update from birder around the world.
