Comments:
This is a bird list from a trip placing camera traps in Virachey NP, in the vicinity of Phnom Haling on the Lao border. the team summited on Feb 1. We walked from village on the Sesan river, 142 km round trip. Most birding was done on the run, as the team needed to spend most of each day moving through challenging terrain. Included and noted are birds from the 2 nights spent in Ban Lung. 2 birds not included were a one time call most likely eye-browed wren babbler and a brief look at what felt to be a rufous-backed sibia. Couldn't close the deal on either one.
