The Bird List

The forest around Ta Bos village and Phnom Tnout appears relatively untouched.  It feels remote.  It is quiet.  But there are people frequenting the forest.  They are hunters of anything, from the local area; loggers from nearby and afar; people collecting resin, forest vegetables, mushrooms etc.  Most of these people are dead shots with their sling shots.  And so yes, while the forest seems intact, the wildlife population is wary.

It is hoped that with protection and education, that the wildlife will become less afraid and more visible.  Bird life is a very good indicator of the health of the forest and so we will try to track what birds we have seen in the locale of the Community Forest and Ta Bos village.  This list will be added to as time goes on.
