Hello Fellow Birders,
I may be going to a wedding in Thailand and so as birders do, I looked up
the bird list for Thailand and to my amazement discovered that Thailand has
a larger bird list (1017) than us.  I also discovered that Thailand has
some really lovely Sunbirds including our Olive-backed Sunbird.  I know
that none of us can possibly know but I'm sure that others have pondered on
why the Olive -backed Sunbird is all over Asia and also Australia and yet I
suppose that the other Sunbirds have stopped at the Wallace Line.  Any
ideas or theories on how we managed to get just one Sunbird would be
Happy birding,
