General characteristics

Doi Chiang Dao is a steep limestone massif in northern Thailand which rises to 2,175 m (see map, p. 424). The threatened Deignan's Babbler Stachyris rodolphei (classified as Vulnerable) is only known from this mountain, in bamboo forest between 1,000 and 1,700 m (Boonsong and Round 1991). However, it is difficult to distinguish in the field from Rufous-fronted Babbler S. rufifrons (with which it may be conspecific: C. R. Robson in litt. 1994), and may prove to occur elsewhere. More-widespread threatened species which occur here are Hume's Pheasant Syrmaticus humiae and Giant Nuthatch Sitta magna (both classified as Vulnerable). Doi Chiang Dao is designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary (IUCN 1992c).
