1 Day Khao Yai
Khao Yai is a national park in Thailand. It lies largely in Nakhon Ratchasima Province (Khorat), but also includes parts of Saraburi, Prachinburi and Nakhon Nayok provinces. It was the country's first national park, established on September 18, 1962. A major role in its establishment was done by Boonsong Lekakul, one of the 20th century's most famous conservationists in Thailand.
A total of 333 species of birds and 71 species of mammals have been reported in Khao Yai. The montane bird fauna is not well represented in Khao Yai, not only because the park is relatively remote from the higher forested mountains of the north and west, but partly because it has only small, isolated areas of unexceptionally high mountain tops. Some typical montane birds include the White-tailed Leaf-Warbler, both of which may be found around Khao Khieo and the other high peaks. Khao Yai bird fauna is chiefly composed of those lowland and hill slope (submontane) birds, which have fairly wide latitudinal ranges. Some other lowland species, such as Siamese Fireback(hard) ich may once have been abundant in the evergreen forests which formerly covered the surrounding plain, are found only at extremely low density around the Khao Yai headquarters area. Some typical resident species inhabiting the evergreen forests of the headquarters area include Silver Pheasant(hard),Vernal Hanging Parrot, Green-billed Malkoha, Mountain Imperial Pigeon, Mountain Scops-Owl(highttime), Orange-breasted and Red-headed Trogons, four species of hornbills, 3 barbets, Greater Flameback and Heart-spotted Woodpecker(hard), 4 species of broadbills(usually in summer), Blue Pitta, Blue-winged Leafbird, Asian Fairy bluebird, a variety of bulbuls, including the Puff-throated and Grey-eyed Bulbul, Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, Green Magpie, Abbott’s Babbler, White-bellied Yuhina, Dark-necked Tailorbird, Hill Blue Flycatche, White-throated Kingfisher, Indian Roller, Chestnut-capped Babbler, Bright-capped Cisticola. Khao Yai is host to many migrant or wintering birds. Khao Yai far from Bangkok around 2-3 hr
