The Hill Prinia is a passerine bird found in China, Vietnam, India, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, and Thailand. Finding this bird in Doi San Ju was quite a joy, it was making this very distinct call on a bare tree and it is just inviting to come find what bird there was to see.

We took photographs of this bird last February of 2017 and when we returned to Doi San Ju last April of the same year, it dd not disappoint us. Well, it showed up on the same tree which was really against the light and it was a difficult exposure; but it flew to the other side of the road where we were staking out a different bird and then we managed to take some descent shots before we headed for Doi Lang
