Conservation Status: Least ConcernBy Ali Bernie Buga-ay / Editor
I have taken a lot of photographs of the Green-billed Malkoha and it has proven difficult, in a sense that it is easy to spot, but to get the right shot is another story to tell. You just need to have extra effort and time in which can be rewarding.
This Green-billed Malkoha is a non-parasitic cuckoo which is found throughout South and Southeast Asia; in Thailand almost everywhere, this bird can thrive. Lowlands and forested areas can be great habitats for this bird as long as there are trees.

Birding in Chiang Mai is one of the best experiences a birder could have. This was the second time we went there this year, lasting was in February and then we can’t wait for December, we decided to go for the Firethroat in Chiang Rai, at Nam Kham Nature Reserve and then head for Doi Lang, Doi San Ju, Doi Ang Kang, and the town Fang. We had five days to find our target birds and also see beautiful places. We left in April 13, 2007 at 6:00 o’ clock in the evening and we took turns driving to Chiang Rai to catch up with the Firethroat before heading to Chiang Mai and climb Doi San Ju.

We have been going with this couple several times fishing, camping, charity works, hiking, shooting arrows, and just about any adventure we can do together.
