A bushy shrubland Chaktomuk Marshland, north of Phnom Penh, favours the endemic Cambodian Tailorbird (Orthotomus chaktomuk). This endangered bird was first discovered and recorded by scientists in 2009. In 2013 it was determined to be a unique species. The dense shrubland habitat, allowed this bird to remain undetected despite its close proximity to the country’s capital. We are likely to see this endemic bird on a short excursion, when travelling from Mondulkiri or Kratie, to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap.

Bird species at Chaktomuk Marshland:

This site supports the Cambodian Tailorbird, Siberian Rubythroat, Oriental Reed-warbler, Spotted Owlet, Plain-backed Sparrow, and Dusky Warbler, Plain-backed Sparrow, as well as waterbirds such as Oriental Darter and Painted Stork. See Chaktomuk Marshland full bird checklist here
