Phangan Island Great Hornbill

Koh Phangan is a frequently visited island off the east coast of Thailand, near Koh Samui, but one which is not usually visited for the purpose of birdwatching.

However, the inland of Phangan Island is mountainous and covered in dense forest with great opportunities for trekking tours.

Great Hornbills (Buceros bicornis) with their impressive size and color are some of the most iconic birds that can be seen on Phangan Island.

Also, birds seen in other locations in Southern Thailand can be watched here, including Brahminy Kites (Haliastur Indus), Blue-throated Bee-eaters (Merops viridis) or Copper-throated Sunbirds (Nectarinia calcostetha); Source:
