Another Partridge that was so lovely to watch as it enjoyed free meal from Baan Song Nok bird hides. In the hide, one may think that it is a comfortable birding activity but it can be wrong. The conditions remain the same, low light, threat of changing weather, mosquitoes, maybe snakes, and the sore of sitting for a long time; but with a bird like this, it is such a treat.
There were other Partridges that showed up, but this one is gold-like with scaly breast and if you never paid attention which showed up, then one would not even know the differences. It would be better if you already have an idea of what is coming so it would be easier to understand the subjects, but then again the joy of surprise is eliminated by too much information. I like birding when I am taken by surprise, yes, some ideas and information will be fine, but at least some good surprise is very important for such birding adventure.
