2004 [November] - Björn Anderson - Western YunnanReport
Western Yunnan is a part of China that surprisingly seldom is visited by birders. Yet, it yields a large number of difficult to see species and shares the avifauna with Myanmar (Burma) and the easternmost Himalayas. Under the experienced leadership of Jesper Hornskov, we were three birders who enjoyed a wealth of unusual babblers and other gems in this tucked away corner of the world. Myself and Stig-Uno Svensson only had the time to stay for the first 1.5 weeks, but Brian Elder and Jesper carried on for another few days...

This was my forth trip to this bird-rich province of southwestern China...

The song was unknown until one year ago and there had been a few sightings of it at Baihualing in recent years...
