I went to Li Jiang in Yunnan province and some other places in 2009 I went on some tours (with many other people) and the only free form birding time I had was at the Black Dragon Pool Park (sort of like the botanic gardens of this old town. Probably every bird species there (except Tree Sparrow) was a new species for me, but that is hardly surprising, it was my first time out of Australia. . Fascinating place. I think my bird observing was far less than you two and of course no photos of wild birds from me.

Congratulations to your harvesting bird tour. I had also been there 8 yrs ago, together with the low altitude area of westernmost Yunnan bordering with Myanmar. During the tour, I had recorded nearly 200 bird species, most of which were my personal new records. Yunnan occupies most species of birds in China, mainly because of it embracing different geographic regions: South China hilly area, Yunnan plateau, Tibet, Eastern Himalayas, North Indochina.

I would like to plan another visit to Western Yunnan after I return to my country.


Kind Regards
Sicheng Wan

                             Jane and i have just got back from Yunnan, China, although mainly a Plant and Orchid tour,  part of the tour stopped off at the Baihualing NP. A top area for birding, with hides thought the NP, to attract the birds Mealy Grubs are put out in front of the hides. I photographed about 30 different species from the hides i went to. There are approximately 800 species of birds in Yunnan, I took photos of just over 80 on the tour. I have put some of the images on my Flickr site for those interest.
