Next week I'll go to Myanmar and I'll use Myanmar Travel Expert to arrange the trip to Mt Victoria. I read your trip report and found it very useful: thank you for sharing this!
I have two questions regarding Myanmar Travel Expert:
- Moe Aung, our contact person, asks me to transfer 50% to him through Western Union. I find it a bit scary to transfer a large amount of money to a person I have never met. How did you get assurances? Or is it possible to pay 50% at arrival and 50% on the first day of the trip?
- We will have Ko Thet as our guide. Does he have the sounds of the birds? Which species/areas do we have to focus on and push him for? Or can we just let him do his thing and we will see all target species?
Thank you very much for your reply and info.
All the best with your amazing travels!
With kind regards
Zoha here again. Just a reminder if it would be possible to get some help from you. Would really love to know your intake on what you think a basic bird hide should be like. Waiting for reply.
I'm an architecture student from Karachi, Pakistan. I, myself am not a bird watcher at all. Recently I have been given an assignment which requires me to build a bird hide in the mangrove forests here in my city. Would really appreciate it if you can help and advise me as to what what i should be catering to in my design and what are the basic necessities of a bird watcher. Looking forward to a positive reply.
Hi Jon, a practical question from a fellow globetrottiing birder from Finland, who is going to visit East New Britain solo.
- Would you know if there is any other place to stay in Kimbe, other than the very expensive Walindi Resort (USD 200+/night)? Queen's Head has been closed and I have not been able to find any information on Hoskins Hotel anywhere (net, LP).
I am a PhD student in the UK working on neotropical bird community assembly. I have a copy of your Cotinga 1999 publication titled 'The birds of Abra Patricia and the upper Rio Mayo, San Martin, north Peru'. I would really like to use the bird lists it contains in my analysis. But to be able to do this I need to know the area of each of the sites you surveyed; Aguas verdes, above afluente, on and near the Garcia ridge, and on the trail at 1900-2300m elevation.
If you do know the size of the area you surveyed, please could you email me this information. If you do not know, but can estimate it to within about 100 hectares that is also very helpful.

I'm not aware of posting one on this site, is it on OBpix? All my photos of it will be slides of birds in the hand on Panay, I can check them. I dont remember any females but there were 2 plumages for sure. Who's the main decision-maker on the latest Phil splits? Good for my list but why no Palawan Frogmouth or Camiguin Bulbul?
