Visited on a Sunday morning with my wife ... there's a pleasant spot to sit by the river and watch boats go by in the morning before it get too hot, but there is little else to see. The temple buildings are rather low key and in disrepair and the birding watchtower is inaccessible and falling apart. Packs of mangy dogs howl as you walk by, so it helps to carry a stick. Toilets are available, but no food or drink vendors nor other services that I saw.

For birders, walking the access road is enjoyable for the more common central Thailand birds. The temple grounds seem to be a rather large relatively untended area attractive to a reasonable number of species (even if the openbills are no longer common - I saw only one). However I did not find any trails into the area which might have helped to discover more.

OK for a short stop not far from the city if you have your own transportation and are looking for some variety in locations, but not really a must-visit place for birders.

Wat Phai Lom, located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Pathum Thani, is (in)famous for what it destroyed rather than what it is! For decades, the trees around Wat Phai Lom were the winter nesting sanctuary for hundreds, if not thousands, of Asian open-billed storks. The scene was truly fantastic and the cool-season nesting site attracted thousands of human visitors to see the fabulous sight of the graceful migratory birds. The stork chicks and fledglings were especially endearing to observe!

For years, the human visitors spent considerable amounts of money on snacks and drinks and obviously contributed generously to the temple during their pilgrimages to the stork sanctuary. In a stupendously idiotic tragedy, however, the temple abbot and decision makers went on a huge construction binge, knocking down trees, piling up construction materials, making loud disturbing noises, and otherwise making the area unattractive to the nesting storks. To make a long story short, they managed to "kill the storks that laid the golden eggs." The storks got fed up with the disruptions to their mating and nesting and abruptly stopped returning to the temple grounds about five years ago (various reports are that the storks are now nesting in Buriram, Nakon Sawong, Nakon Chaisi, and elsewhere).

The temple grounds are now blighted by a huge temple building dedicated to the storks that no longer visit (unmaintained, falling apart, and home to a large number of pigeons), a crumbling giant sculpture of stork, and a large empty parking lot. Almost no visitors go to the temple nowadays. Unfortunately, there is really nothing for tourists to see here anymore except for evidence of human folly and disrespect for nature.
