a pair of binoculars for beginners and a digital camera can make you a starter wild bird photographer.

aside from the long-tailed shrike, pied fantail, chestnut munia and cute golden-bellied flyeaters perching on tree branches, i just captured a blurry shot of a cinnamon bittern! coooool! πŸ˜€

next item on my bucket list: camera binoculars.

target date: ASAP πŸ˜€

After ng Candaba, ngayon na lang ako ulit nakapag-birdwatching. Exciting pa rin. Di man naming nakita ang hinahanap naming Oriental Cuckoo at Black-naped Oriole.

nakakita naman kami ng Philippine Woodpecker.

nawala ang dismaya namin ng makita namin to, Philippine Woodpecker πŸ˜€

Marami pa kaming na-spot-an tulad ng Golden-bellied Flyeater, Yellow-vented Bulbul at Brown Shrike sa isang puno ng Balete sa left side ng amphitheater.

At syempre di rin mawawala ang mga Pied Fantail at Eurasian Tree Sparrows aka maya. Kewl. Meron ding 2 bird species sa may beta way na di naming ma-identify ni Marky kung anong ibon sila, kung Little Pied Flycatcher ba or hindi at isang black and white na small-sized bird na nakatayo sa isang sanga ng puno few meters away from the walkway. May nakita rin kaming isang malaking white na bird na lumilipad sa himpapawid, sa may Quezon Hall, at di namin makita ng maayos kung ano sya (egret?).

Ang fail ko lang dahil di pa ako masyado nakaka-distinguish ng ibon from afar at mga huni nila. Pero I think this is the start! Yeah! Bukas ulit!!! πŸ˜€
