First, Pak Chong is not a large town but the city park is very lively with the chirping and twittering of many kinds of birds. The town is just over 40km from the Khao Yai National Park.
However, the early sightings of the baby and adult Asian Barred Owlet (Glaucidium cuculoides) - a lifer for me - made me ignore the rest of the park's residents. And you can see why - they are sooooo cute and good looking. Small, compact and with gorgeous feather patterns.
