The prospect of finding a true gem of a bird is daunting; we wait, we listen, we pay attention to good people who share and we can share in return, we simply spend and find it. Breeding in Siberia, it is a welcome of a gem to come. Thank you Khun Saian for making us excited since last year 2016 to wait and find; finally to a dear true friend Prin Pattawaro, thanks a lot for giving us the opportunity to see it straight from the wild.

Watching the Siberia Rubythroat was fun, as it went deep into the thick of the Bamboos. As it waits from inside, you will see its ruby throat flashing, showing any living creature that it is there. I myself was really amused about its behavior from inside the thicket. As it comes out, other birds terrorized it from the perch we provided for it to come, then it retreated again. Later the Rubythroat came out and displayed to us its beauty.
