The Claudia’s Leaf Warbler is considered to be a subspecies of the Blyth’s Leaf Warbler and it is only found in China; but guess what? We have it here in Thailand. The natural habitat is temperate forests and Khao Yai National Park is a perfect habitat. Leaf Warblers are very difficult to identify and yet I am happy to have people who can really identify them; like this one, without expert and experienced eyes, it is is really difficult.
Finding this bird in Khao Yai National Park was another joy and I just dis my best to capture it in the camera even though I was not sure yet if what kind of Leaf Warbler it was. Well, who knows, we captured a rare one. I really hope to find this bird next time for a better lighting so we get also the best shots we could.
