Here's the hide, which is more expansive than it looked . There were several folding chairs on either side of the tunnel. We were fortunate to be the only ones present, as the animals were obviously aware of us. Reservations are recommended, we were just plain lucky the blind was open. The shade was welcome!
and this Northern Tree-Shrew. I was surprised at these size of these animals! A life family for me, the Tupaiidae - whether insectivores or primitive primates.
Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, showing off its long, twisted tail feathers. The tips were in constant motion in the breezeas this bird waited its turn in the water! I'm surprised the birds didn't splash all the water out.
White-crested Laughingthrush. I was surprised how shy the Laughingthrushes were as a group, and how social. They normally arrived in droves and stayed until all had a turn in the water.
