Florican Grasslands

The Florican Grasslands are an area of flat, open grasslands in northern Cambodia. They are known as an area where the rare bird, the Bengal Florcian, (a black and white Bustard) can be seen doing their breeding display.

Yes, the Bengal Florican displays a long way away!

There are other open country birds to be seen here, including...

And if you have a guide, you might be able to track down owls in the area...

Spotted Owlet

The Florican Grasslands are several hours drive north of Siem Reap.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the first expeditions I am booked to work on is the NZ sub-Antarctics with Silversea Expeditions. And here is a shortened version of one of my lectures in a warmer part of the world.
