The next morning dawned bright, warm earthy scent wafting subtly through the still chilled air. I left for some early morning birding with our nice co-tourists, who warmly welcomed me to their group. What followed is still one of my best birdwatching experiences. We went back on the same trail we had gone by last evening. A curious Blue Whistling Thrush came by just as we reached the beginning point, as if to welcome us. The Black Drongos were keeping the forest alive as usual, and a Streaked Spiderhunter gave us a fleeting glance.
