The Hainan Blue Flycatcher has been a an exciting bird for both Arpha and I, we attempted twice and it showed up to us for those two wonderful moments. The first time we came was a “fast and furious” run since we were running out of daylight and we arrived at the location at 5:00 o’ clock in the afternoon and it showed up at around 5:30 p.m. so the light was not good. The second time was also a “fast and furious” run and that was the part two. We were taking Gruff Dodd at the location to find his lifer and we arrived at 7:20 a.m. from Bangkok and then we had to go right away to catch up with another location and we should be back in Bangkok before 4:30 p.m., it was stressful to think about it but we made it.
We plan to go back and spend the whole day at the location hoping to find more birds as we wait for the Hainan Blue Flycatcher. To call it out is easy, we just need plenty of time and we are willing to do it again to get the full body of this bird. Well, it is another blue colour of a Flycatcher. It is beautiful!
