Birding at Doi Lang, North Thailand Part 2

After coffee break, we continue our birding at this beautiful place.
 What a unusual place...  high up the mountain on the dry branch. This orchid have all the sunlight to itself!
air plants
 Can I call this hanging on a thread?
Collared owlet
 Took us quite some time to locate this very well camouflage Collared owlet (Glaucidium brodiei).
Mrs. Gould's Sunbird
Mrs. Gould's Sunbird as stunning as usual. Is quite a challenge to take photo of this always on the move bird.
short-billed minivet
We arrived at this spot at the right time, just in time to watch the bird wave. First was this male short-billed minivet.

 The female follow right after the male appear.
 What a surprise to see Cutia in the bird wave too.
Large Niltava

Vivid Niltava
 My first seeing this Vivid Niltava.
Ultramarine flycatcher
Not difficult to understand why this bird was called Ultramarine flycatcher! Like the super blue colour!
Spot-breasted Parrotbill
 Another familiar bird that I saw the last time I visited this place. This must be the usual spot for this Spot-breasted Parrotbill to "hang out"
Fork-tailed swift
After several try, finally managed to take a photo of this fast flying Fork-tailed swift. Just didn't get bored coming back to place over and over again.
