Cambodian Tailorbird Site
Cambodian Tailorbird Site (Phnom Penh)

Cambodian Tailorbird (Orthotomus chaktomuk) is only found in the floodplain wetlands where the mighty Mekong River meets the Tonle Sap and Bassac Rivers. This site is excellent for open-country species such as Plain-backed Sparrow and we often see large waterbirds such as Oriental Darter and Painted Stork. In the scrub in which the tailorbird is found, we should also see a range of winter visitors, such as Black-browed Reed-warbler, Brown Shrike and Siberian Rubythroat.
