At last, it's possible to visit this ill-starred country with all those wonderful endemic birds. Although woefully scarred by the war, most of the scars are gone and there are still some good birding areas left. We'll explore north and south, in both lowlands and mountains in our search for Vietnam's special birds. We should see most of the following: Pied Falconet, Bar-backed, Orange-necked, and Scaly-breasted Partridges, Silver Pheasant, Siamese Fireback, Germain's Peacock-Pheasant, Green Peafowl, Blue-spectacled Pigeon, Red-vented Barbet, Bar-bellied Pitta, Spot-throated Babbler, Coral-billed and Red-billed Scimitar-Babblers, Grey-faced Tit-Babbler, Black-hooded, Grey, White-cheeked, Spot-breasted and Collared Laughingthrushes, Rufous-throated and Black-browed Fulvettas, Grey-crowned Crocias, Blue-spectacled Parrotbill, Fujian Niltava, White-tailed Flycatcher, Yellow-billed Nuthatch, Vietnamese Greenfinch, White-winged and Indochinese Magpies, and Ratchet-tailed Treepie. With luck, we could see a Grey Peacock-Pheasant, Pale-capped Pigeon, Red-collared Woodpecker, Pale-headed Woodpecker, Blue-rumped or Blue Pitta, Short-tailed Scimitar-Babbler, or Short-tailed Parrotbill.
