258: Richard's Pipit, Petchaburi, Nov 6

A great candidate for an EBC, I would think. it was taken from the car as they suddenly appeared. and I didn't want to get out for them to disappear immediately, which they did in any case. another migrant that comes northern Asia.

Great! the posting is back, so I'd better get going to try and finish my list. 

 

Have I also mentioned how terrible I am at simple arithmetric? I"ve messed up my number count yet again. and now the edit function has gone, I can't return to amend it. Instead here's the revised number count: 

 

276 (not 256): Little Cormorant

277 (not 257) : Black-tailed Godwit

278 (not 258): Richard's pipit

 

 

In addition, going back through my notes, I realised that the myna seen in Petchaburi is the great myna, which has a larger crest on its head than the crested myna I mistook it for. 

So I'll amend it thus: 

 

279: Great Myna, Petchaburi, Nov 6.

 

Moving on.....

I'm wading into slippery grounds. The following IDs are based on my guide's IDs, after which I used an Asian reference guide on shorebirds in Asia to determine the species as much as I can. Let me know if you think otherwise.

There are still a few more waders and shorebirds which I can't ID and am waiting to see if the guide can help with. Meanwhile, I'll finish up the Singapore list.

299: Cotton Pygmy Goose, Lorong Halus, Dec 27

 

- a rare winter migrant, the goose is the size of a duck, hence the pgymy reference.

@Peter Connan 

The adult is even more stunning. If i had the adult, i would have saved it for the 300th. 

But this species is not that bad looking either.
