Dak Dam Bird Site
Dak Dam is a fairly new site for SVC, located in the Southeastern corner of Cambodia on the Sen Monorom plateau. Elevations of over 800 meters can be reached here. Much of the forest has been lost here, but remnants here have produced a number of more montane species associated with the Annamite Mountains of Vietnam.
A number of new Cambodian records have come from this region, which is usually included as an additional day to our Seima trip.
Birds of interest include: Bar-backed Partridge, Black Eagle, Mountain Imperial Pigeon, Pin-tailed Green Pigeon, Pale-capped Pigeon, Long-tailed Broadbill, Black and Ashy Bulbuls, Silver-eared Mesia, Blue-winged Siva, Black-headed Parrotbill, Black-chinned Yuhina, White-cheeked and Black-throated Laughingthrush, Black-throated Sunbird, Black-browed Fulvetta.
Dak Dam area provides the adventure of discovering the unexpected and possibly something new for the Cambodian list.
