Conservation Status: Least ConcernBy Ali Bernie Buga-ay / Editor
The Orange-bellied Flowerpecker Dicaeum trigonostigma is found in Bangladesh, Brunei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Philippines, and Thailand in which Kaeng Krachan National Park is a fantastic habitat for this lovely bird.

It come back to you many times if it felt comfortable for the first time. It is also friendly to other birds as they play chase. They flew around endlessly from one flower to another, on a twig, on a branch, it was a happy day. Imagine this tiny beauty, I can’t get enough. I just watched this bird like I have never seen one in a million years; they are just right in front of us.

I taught them how to shoot arrows in archery, fishing, encourage them with other sports to enjoy, and finally camping and just hiking and hiking. They know about photography but they never thought on how much it is very important as an outdoor’s man.
They always love to tag along with us in camping and fishing, and we have taken them to some of our birding sorties and yet they never understood what wildlife was. I have also made both of them join my photography club in Bangkok and we have had fantastic exhibitions on streets, macros, landscapes, wildlife and all; never they have learned to love the wildlife as much as this.
We told them that we were going to Chiang Mai, north of Thailand for a birding expedition last April of 2017 and…
