Great Neighbours

We have some of the best neighbours in the world. They live in harmony with the environment and contribute to our sense of well-being and happiness.

One must first meet the Finlayson's squirrels. Their milky white fur makes them an unusual looking resident, but they are seen often here. The entire family are gymnasts, leaping from rooftop to tree branch in search of betel nut palm fruit.

A noisy Khao Yai native is the red-wattled lapwing. This screamer can be heard at all hours, day and night, whenever it distracts predators away from its eggs and hatchlings hiding in a nest on the ground.

An occasional visitor to Eco Valley Lodge is the red-whiskered bulbul. This saucy species flash their bright red rumps as a warning to each other that they mean business!

One doesn't have to go far from the resort to see a real marvel. Just around the corner are resident Baya weavers. Master engineers, the males make the most amazing nests for their mates in breeding season using only beak and claw.

Thanks to our guests, Jan and Margie from the Netherlands, for taking and sharing these great pics with us!
