wonderful photos of philippine birds
very nice site…mabuhay!
Excellent gallery! It would be nice if Filipino children could read/know this instead of endangered species of America.
Wow ! Wow ! Wow ! Amazing shots ! Excellent photography! Tropical birds are exotic and more colorful than many of the birds I have photographed here in Southern California. I am not even an amateur, just a bird enthusiast equipped with a point and shoot camera.
I’ve so far just viewed the Luzon birds. I know I will be just as excited and amazed when I come back to visit your site next time to view the birds from the rest of the islands.
Thank you so much !
Beautiful and very diverse Philippine birds. Excellent photos and videos.
Many thanks Cesar.
Is this Malkoha, the sabukot in the local dialect? I can only see the belly part, it has black under belly plumage with reddish, almost maroon colored wings, have not seen its face! Great shot!
Pied Fantail is the maria capra in local dialect? I see them in pairs always, btw, m from nasugbu, batangas! There are still plenty of them here!
The Sabukot is a Coucal, maybe a Philippine Coucal or a Lesser Coucal. THey are related to the Malkohas…
Yup, Pied Fantail is Maria Capra.
Hi. I’m from Morong, Rizal near Antipolo City. I have seen 2 little birds in our garden this morning, collecting nectar on our orchids. I was amazed because i never seen it before. At first I thought it was a hummingbird that’s why I searched it on the internet.
Thanks for this site.
great site… offers a lot of insight about the birdlife around the philippines
we know more about other countries wildlife thru discovery and natgeo… this site is an opener to our own biodiversity
hi, can i ask something about this pied fantail, i’m from san cristobal, san pablo city, laguna, we have many kinds of birds in our province and i’m very luck that around our community most of these birds display their elegance naturaly, i wonder if this pied fantail differs their colour according to their gender? coz i saw at least 10 of these fantails in our backyard and they have differrent colors, pale brown and dark metallic blue…. i just wonder so i ask… thanks
maybe they are different birds karlon. pied fantail is blackish brown only, maybe the metallic blue that you saw was a balicassiao, a type of drongo. thanks for looking at our website!
Indeed! These are the ones that visits my garden. Thanks again for the info.
