We have had this bird in our cameras but yesterday was an exciting one. We were from Panoen Thong down tot he Thor Thip Waterfall trail and then back to Loong Sin hide where we only saw a Spotted Dove, we tried our best to be patient and then loong Sin came to know who were in his hide. We tried calling him but we did not get a signal so, like what he would have told everyone, just go inside, I will find you and then you can pay later. We didn’t anything more, we decided check out Baan Song Nok Hide, which I also tokk a look a day before. All private hides in the wild rendered the ordinary birds and it was disappointing.

I was permitted to check and I saw this Pale-legged Leaf Warbler, I ran to my truck to get the camera and just took a photogarph of it as fast as I could since we have to bring Harry and Neth to Don Muang International Airport in Bangkok. Time was running and I just fired the shutter and took as many as i could without using the tripod. The low light situation at Baan Song Nok is real and one must come in with a tripod to avoid regrets of horrible rendering of images, using slow shutter speed. I held my breath and wished for the best, we never shot raw.
