Laag2x pag may time – Mambukal Resort

Hi guys!
Love to share our expedition/birding in Mambukal Resort, Murcia, Negros Occidental last June 12 to 14, 2014 with dude Jilmer. A double purpose trip and one of that is birding. I was not able to photograph these birds like the Balicassiao, Emerald Dove, White-throated Kingfisher (We saw at the boating lagoon very late in the afternoon), Pied Triller, Pygmy Swiftlet and Philippine Tailor Bird.

We saw 2 species of Common Kingfisher at Butterfly Garden Area. My last lifer in Mambukal Resort. 6/14/14

Very common, the Mangrove Blue Flycatcher.I took this photo while waiting for the Blue-eared Kingfisher.
My second to the last lifer in Mambukal Resort. 6/14/14

My second lifer and my second encountered of this bird, the Mangrove Blue Flycatcher. 6/13/14

I’m guessing that this is a Juvenile Olive-backed Sunbird. 6/13/14

// The second day in Mambukal Resort and we have only 4 hours for birding: 6/14/14

I spotted first of the Common Kingfisher in boating lagoon area.
We thought its the Blue-eared Kingfisher but false alarm. huhuhu… 6/14/14

Image

Yellowish White-eye. I’m not sure with the ID because this is the only photo I’ve got and it’s a bad capture. 6/14/14

Philippine Magpie-Robin scavenging on the garbage in Mambukal Resort. 6/14/14
I suggest that they will make a hole for there garbage because it can bring disease.

4 photos was combined into one. Very simple but very creative.

Sparrowhawk or Goshawk?

Never had a photo of this bird preaching on the tree. Every time i’m passing by around 6:00AM to 6:45AM near Camilla Homes going to Palinpinon, Valencia, I never miss this bird flying towards southeast. I suspect this is a Large Hawk-Cuckoo. What do you think?
