Chaktomuk Marshland 

A bushy shrubland, 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.

 

Bird Species

This site supports the Cambodian Tailorbird, Siberian Rubythroat, Oriental Reed-warbler, Spotted Owlet, Plain-backed Sparrow, and Dusky Warbler.

We are likely to see this endemic bird on a short excursion, when travelling from Mondulkiri or Kratie, to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. See Chaktomuk Marshland Bird Checklist
