Vietnam is one of the most beautiful, friendly and fascinating countries in Asia. An early season visit there finds the country at its best, the climate mostly cool, dry and enjoyable, the winter birds still present and the resident ones gearing up for breeding season. Due to recent taxonomic “splits”, Vietnam hosts no less than 14 true endemic species, and this number continues to increase as further work is done, and new discoveries made. A further 30 or so Vietnamese bird species are restricted to Indochina and there are a number of very interesting and distinct “subspecies”, several of which are destined to be future “splits” into new species. A large range of Southeast Asian species of wider distribution and a host of birds wintering from further north add to the richness of Viet Nam’s avian diversity.

Birdwatching highlights

On a comperhensive 3-week tour covering sites across Vietnam, you could exprect to see upwards of 300 species, including most of the country endemics and regional specialities. The majority of Vietnam’s Endemics can be found in Dalat, Lam Dong province, place for Grey-crownded Crocias, Collared, Orange-breasted Laughingthrush, Vietnam Cutia and Greenfinch. The nearby Cat Tien National park is lowlands host for many species of Pittas, Phesant, Partridenges, including range-restricted Orange-breasted Patridge. 

Moving central Vietnam’s extensive mountains hold serval recent discoverries, including endemic Chestnut-eared Laughingthrush, Golden-winged Laughingthrush and near Endemic Black-crowned Barwing and many of sub-species compair to Thai and Malaysia. 

In the northern Vietnam is home for himalayan Bird with is similar to Southern China’s subtropical evergreen forests with specialities as Short-tailed Parrot-bill, white-eared NightHeron and very rare endemic White-throated Scimitar-Babbler. 

Birding season

North-Vietnam weather for birding

Sa Pa, Ba Be Np., Tam Dao Np., Ba Vi Np., Xuan Thuy Np., Cuc Phuong Np,.

North Vietnam has a distinct winter and summer season. The cool but mostly dry in winter lasts from Nov to Apr when the temperatures average 17-220 C with the coldest months being from Jan – Mar. Summer last from May to Oct when it’s hot, humid and the region experiences its highest rainfall. Jul to Sep are often the wettest months of the year.

So the best time for birding in the North-Vietnam is during the dry season from Oct to Apr, warm-clothing are recommended from Dec to Jan because it’s very cold when birding in cloudy.


Central-Vietnam weather for birding

Phong Nha-Ke Bang Np., Samu pass, Bach Ma Np,. Da Nang, Ngoc Linh Np., Kon-tum Pr.,

The weather in central is hot and dry weather from mid Jan to late Aug, with the temperature often reaching mid-30’s0 C. During the winter time the rainfall increases with Oct to Nov achieving peak levels, occasionally in the form of typhoons. In the central-highland the rainy time is from Jun to Oct and the peak of rainfall often in Jul to Sep.

At the far south of Central-Vietnam where benefits from a longer dry season (Jan to Sep), with the high temperatures and little rain. The rainy season runs from Oct to Mid of Dec with almost haft the annual rainfall in Oct and Nov.

So the best time for birding in the Central-Vietnam is from Dec to May, some place although it is rain but you still could birding from May to Oct like Son Tra near Da Nang city where rain not too long and after rain is good for birding.

South-Vietnam weather for birding

Dalat plateau, Cat Tien Np., Dinh Mountain, Can Gio mangrove forest, Mekong delta

With temperatures remaining constant year round the climate of the south is split into two simple seasons, wet and dry. The dry season begins in November and ends in April/early May with late February to May being slightly hotter and with higher humidity. The wet season lasts from May to early November with the months from June to August receiving the highest rainfall of the year. Throughout much of the wet season rainfall is generally heavy but short lasting, often occurring in a mid-afternoon heavy down-pour!

The average temperatures in the south range between 25 – 35°C year round.

Dalat is wet from June to October making outdoor pursuits problematic. From November to May it is far dryer although cold in December & January. In the Mekong Delta monsoon climate with two seasons; wet (late-July to late October) and dry (November to July).


Lowland evergreen and semi-evergreen forest

Characterised by a high diversity of broadleaf tree species and rich, diverse bird communities, lowland evergreen forest is the natural forest type over much of lowland Vietnam below c.900 m. This habitat type, one of the most threatened forest types in Asia, now covers just a fraction of what it once did, primarily due to its clearance for agricultural use. Semi evergreen, or mixed deciduous, forest is very similar in composition to lowland evergreen forest but with the addition of deciduous trees such as dipterocarps. Buttressed trees, bamboos, palms and vines are prevalent in this forest type. Typical birds species found in Vietnam’s lowland evergreen and semi-evergreen forest include cuckoos, trogons, hornbills, barbets, woodpeckers, pittas, broadbills, bulbuls, ground babblers, flowerpeckers and sunbirds.

Montane evergreen forest

Above c.900 m montane evergreen forest takes over from lowland evergreen with oaks, chestnuts, beeches, laurels and conifers dominating. Two distinct types of montane evergreen forest in Vietnam can be recognized, lower montane and upper montane evergreen forest. Above 1700 m there is a clearly defined transition to upper montane evergreen forest with tree species such as rhododendrons starting to dominate. Vietnam’s montane evergreen forests harbour a high density of bird species including skrike-babblers, tits, warblers, babblers, nuthatches, thrushes and flycatchers. Montane evergreen forest is of particular interest in Vietnam as it is in this habitat that many of the endemic and near-endemic babblers and laughingthrushes occur.

Deciduous forest

Deciduous forest is found in the drier low-lying areas of west-central and southern Vietnam, particularly those areas bordering eastern Cambodia. Deciduous forest in Vietnam can be subdivided into two types, dry dipterocarp forest and mixed deciduous forest. Dry dipterocarp forest grows in drier areas on poor soil and is characterised by a canopy of dipterocarp trees and an open grassy understorey. As there is no midstorey in this forest type it is not as rich in bird species as lowland evergreen or semi-evergreen forest. Woodpeckers and parakeets are among those species typical of this forest type.
Mixed deciduous forest occurs in areas with more nutrient-rich soil leading to more diverse vegetation with varied tree species, often some bamboo, and a middle storey making this forest type richer in bird species than dry dipterocarp. Bird communities are similar to those found in lowland evergreen forest.

Coniferous forest

Vietnam’s native coniferous forest on the Dalat Plateau, at the southern extremity of the Annamites, is dominated by Benguet pine, Pinus kesiya, also known as three-needled pine. Bird diversity in this forest type is low compared to most others, but some key species such as Slender-billed Oriole, Red Crossbill and the endemic Langbian Tit and Vietnamese Greenfinch are almost entirely restricted to this habitat. At higher elevations on the Dalat Plateau, conifer species including two endemic pines, Krempf’s pine Pinus krempfi and Dalat pine Pinus dalatensis, are mixed with montane evergreen forest, and bird communities here are very similar to those in montane evergreen forest. Conifer species such as the cypress Taiwania and the highly-prized Fokienia grow in montane forests of the Hoang Lien range in the far north-west of Vietnam.

Limestone forest

This forest type is an evergreen forest that grows in areas of limestone and on limestone outcrops, often sculpted into striking karst formations with sharp jagged peaks. It is found in parts of northern and central Vietnam, and is an important habitat for several limestone specialists such as Limestone Leaf-warbler, Greyish Limestone-babbler and the near endemics Sooty Babbler and Nonggang Babbler.

Freshwater wetlands

Freshwater wetlands in Vietnam include rivers, lakes and marshes. The bird communities of all these habitats have suffered as a result of human exploitation and encroachment. Typical riverine birds such as River Lapwing, Masked Finfoot, White-winged Duck and Blyth’s Kingfisher are rare, and some are on the verge of extinction in the country.
Many artificial lakes and reservoirs have been created throughout the country in recent years, but perhaps due to pressure from hunting or simply being unsuitable, they attract few birds. Several protected areas incorporating fresh water wetlands throughout Vietnam provide an important refuge for waterbirds such as crakes, rails, storks, ibises, bitterns, herons, egrets, cormorants and Oriental Darter, as well as small numbers of wintering ducks.

Seasonally inundated grasslands

One of the most threatened habitats in Vietnam, seasonally inundated grasslands, once covered large areas of southern Vietnam, particularly the Mekong Delta region bordering Cambodia. Much of the original grassland has been converted to agriculture and only a few fragments now remain. Bird species restricted to this habitat in Vietnam include dwindling numbers of wintering Sarus Cranes.

Coastal wetlands and other coastal habitats

Vietnam’s coastal wetlands include intertidal mudflats, and man-made habitats such as salt pans and shrimp ponds. In northern Vietnam, the Red River’s intertidal mudflats represent important habitat for migratory and wintering birds including globally threatened such as Black-faced Spoonbill, Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Spotted Greenshank and Saunders’ Gull. In the south of the country parts of the Mekong Delta offer similar habitats, while saltpans and shrimp ponds along Vietnam’s central and southern coastline provide important feeding areas for migrant waders.
Much of Vietnam’s native mangrove forest has disappeared, but what remains or has been replanted in recent years provides habitat for bitterns, herons, egrets, cormorants and kingfishers as well as Golden-bellied Gerygone, Mangrove Whistler, Mangrove Blue-flycatcher and Copper-throated Sunbird.
Undisturbed beaches and coastal scrub along Vietnam’s long coastline provide suitable breeding habitat for a variety of species including plovers, terns, bee-eaters and kingfishers, while stands of beachside Casuarina trees are favoured by Plain-backed Sparrow and Oriental Greenfinch.
The rocky offshore islands and islets that comprise the Con Dao archipelago off Vietnam’s south-east coast offer important breeding sites for seabirds, several of which occur nowhere else in Vietnam. These include Red-billed Tropicbird, Brown Noddy, two species of booby and several species of tern. In addition to seabirds, Con Dao is also home to two pigeons adapted to island life, Nicobar Pigeon and Pied Imperial Pigeon.

Key notes

Access: There are now 3 main international airport in Vietnam – Noi Bai airport, Hanoi Capital in the North, Danang airport in the central and Tan San Nhat airport in the South

Accommodation & Road Transport: The hotels/guesthouses are comfortable and of good or medium standard throughout.

Walking: The walking effort during our Vietnam birding tour is mostly easy, but there are some longer walks.

Climate: Most days at lower altitudes in the south will be warm or hot, dry and sunny. In the north and at higher altitudes in the south conditions range from warm to rather cool. Overcast weather is not infrequent and it may well rain.

Bird Photography: High opportunities for Photographer today

Health & Safe: Vaccinations for hepatitis A and B and Typhoid are recommended for visting birdwatcher. Leeches and ticks occur in lowland and submountane forests. While tichks are more likely to be encountedred during the dry season when most Birdwatcher visit. leeches are in greater abundance during the wetter season of the year.

Birds of Vietnam, the most wanted species of all birders around the World

(A review on distribution and status)

by Nguyen Hoai Bao

© Vietnam Wildlife Tours & Research LTD – 2018

1. Ten true endemic birds of Vietnam

Tonkin Partridge (Arborophila tonkinesis) – LC

Distributes from Northern Central to East Tonkin, this species was being complicated in taxonomy. Arborophila charltonii, A. tonkinensis, and A. graydoni (del Hoyo and Collar 2014) were previously lumped as A. charltonii following Sibley and Monroe (1990, 1993).

Edward’s Pheasant (Lophura edwardsi) – CR

Formerly distributed from Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri & Thua Thien Hue provinces and considered as locally fairly common. However, recently there was no sighting, probably more than 20 years.

  • Vietnamese Pheasant (Lophura hatinhensis) – unrecognised, was previous split from L. edwardsi following Sibley and Monroe (1990, 1993) but now is lumped back.
  • Imperial Pheasant (Lophura imperialis) – unrecognised,  a study suggested this species is actually a hybrid between Vietnamese Pheasant x Silver Pheasant.

Black-crowned Fulvetta (Alcippe klossi) – LC

A split from Rufous-winged confined to south Annam. Fairly common and easy to see on Langbian and Bidoup moutains

White-throated Wren-Babbler (Rimator pasquieri) – EN

A recent split from Long-billed and confined to Mt Fan Si Pan in west Tonkin. It has also been recorded in recent years at Mu Cang Chai Species and Habitat Conservation Area (Yen Bai Province) and Van Ban Nature Reserve (Lao Cai Province)

Orange-breasted Laughingthrush (Garrulax annamensis) – LC

Now split from Spot-breasted and endemic to south Annam. Locally common in Di Linh ad Da Lat.

Chestnut-eared Laughingthrush (Garrulax konkakinhensis) – VU

Only known from Mt Kon Ka Kinh in central Annam until it located and photographed it at Mang Canh in 2010, this place become a popular destination for birding nowadays.

Golden-winged Laughingthrush (Garrulax ngoclinhensis) – VU

So far only known from Mt Ngoc Linh in central Annam, Mang Ri forest near Tu Mo Rong is the most accessible site to see this species.

Collared Laughingthrush (Garrulax yersini) – EN

Only found in south Annam, centred round Mt Langbian, Bidoup Nui Ba national park and Chu Yang Sin national park

Grey-crowned Crocias (Crocias langbianis) – EN

New genus name is Laniellus, endemic to south Annam and very localized, it can be found at Ta Nung, Tuyen Lam and a site at Dam Rong on the road 28 Da Lat  to Ban Me Thuot. Recently found in Mang Den and Ngoc Linh (Wildtour, 2014).

Vietnamese Greenfinch (Carduelis monguilloti) – LC

Confined to pine forest in south Annam, common in Da Lat and Di Linh

2. Near-endemic birds of Vietnam, meaning that they can be found near border of Vietnam with its neighbour

White-eared Night-Heron (Gorsachius magnificus) – EN

Long thought endemic to south China and at one time considered as a breeding bird only on Hainan Island it is only recently that the colony at Ba Be has reached the keen of western birders. Unfortunately during last two years (2016-2017), there was no sighting in Ba Be anymore.

Orange-necked Partridge (Arborophila davidi) – NT

Used to endemic to northeast Cochinchina but recently found in east Cambodia, and now very rarely seen in its former stronghold at Cat Tien National park. Tan Phu forest is one of the best sites for this species.

Germain’s Peacock-Pheasant (Polyplectron germaini) – NT

Occurs in east Cambodia but Vietnam is its stronghold especially at Cat Tien national park

Red-vented Barbet (Megalaima lagrandieri) – LC

Although it occurs in Cambodia and Laos as well as Vietnam it is usually most easy to see here

Indochinese Barbet (Megalaima annamensis) – LC

Recently finally split from Black-browed and confined south Laos and south Annam

Red-collared Woodpecker (Picus rabieri) – NT

Although it occurs in Laos, Vietnam is the only logical place to search for this bird. Astonishingly elusive for a Woodpecker it totally eluded us as it does most tour groups

Blue-rumped Pitta (Pitta soror) – LC

Allegedly widespread in Indo-China and occurring as far west as west Thailand, it is rarely seen outside Vietnam (and often missed within as well)

Bar-bellied Pitta (Pitta elliotii) – LC

Like Blue-rumped Pitta, it is occurring as far west as Thailand and again rarely seen outside of Vietnam

White-winged Magpie (Urocissa whiteheadi) – LC

Fairly widespread but rarely seen outside of Vietnam or southwest China

Grey-crowned Tit (Aegithalos annamensis) – LC

Confined to south Laos and Annam. Now generally recognised as distinct from Black-throated Tit

Yellow-billed Nuthatch (Sitta solangiae) – NT

Although it occurs outside of Vietnam, only really findable within its borders

Limestone Warbler (Phylloscopus calciatilis) – LC

Occurring in limestone country in central Laos and central Annam, but again only realistically findable in Vietnam. A recent split from Sulphur-breasted Warbler

Black-headed Parrotbill (Paradoxornis margaritae) – NT

Now recognised as distinct from Grey-headed and confined to south Annam, rare in Muldukiri, Cambodia.

Black-hooded Laughingthrush (Garrulax milleti) – NT

Just reaching into Laos otherwise confined to Vietnam

Rufous-cheeked Laughingthrush (Garrulax castanotis) – LC

Occurs on Hainan Island and central Laos. Most reliable sites are on Mt Ba Vi and the forest on west Ho Chi Minh road at Samu pass 

White-cheeked Laughingthrush (Garrulax vassali) – LC

Fairly widespread in highland of Laos and Vietnam

Short-tailed Scimitar-Babbler (Jabouilleia danjoui) – NT

Virtually confined to Annam and Tonkin, target bird at Da Lat, Mang Den, Bach Ma.  Also call Indochinese Wren Babbler

Sooty Babbler (Stachyris herberti) – LC

Formerly considered endemic to limestone country in central Laos but now known to be thriving in central Annam. Locally common in Phong Nha Ke Bang national park

Pale-throated Wren Babbler (Spelaeornis kinneari) – NT

Confined to Fansipan mt, recently recorded in NW Wangxi, Yunan, China

Grey-faced Tit-Babbler (Macronous kelleyi) – LC

An exciting Indochinese endemic! Very common and widespread in southern of Vietnam  

Vietnamese Cutia (Cutia legalleni) – NT

Now split from Himalayan and confined to south Annam. Found fairly common in Da Lat, Di Linh, Mang Den and Central Laos

Black-crowned Barwing (Actinodura sodangoram) – LC

Only recently described and confined to southeast Laos and southern central Annam. Best site is Mang Ri forest but also able to see at Lo Xo pass by the roadside

Indochinese Fulvetta (Alcippe danisi) – LC

A Laos speciality but also found in central and south Annam. Found on Bidoup mt and Ngoc Linh mt above 1,800m
