of a female Eared Pitta, foraging around in the undergrowth. After some time I heard more rustling around a short distance away and saw the male. We watched both birds at a distance of about 10 metres for roughly 10 minutes before Merl asked if he could get closer for a photo. Given the light and the fact that he would have to be very close I didn’t think there was much chance but the Pittas didn’t seem concerned by us so I told him to go ahead. More

Eared Pitta is an uncommon resident and rarely seen by visiting birdwatchers. However, in Lekagul and Round it is listed as an uncommon to common resident and it may be that the low number of sightings is due to the fact that its habitat below 900 metres is not as widely visited as it might be.

it is difficult to view, and Eared Pitta is sometimes sighted; a bird seldom encountered outside of Khao Yai. Many other amazing birds may be seen during any 2-3 day visit to Khao Yai; Long-tailed Broadbill is straight out of a Disney movie, Slaty-backed Forktail lurks on some of the streams, Orange-breasted and Red-headed Trogons occur in the mid-storey and Nightjars are frequent at dusk and dawn over open areas.
