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

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?

Surprisingly one of our colleagues in Valencia Production spotted this species in the dark area along the road in Brg. Bediao, Dauin going to Lake Yagumyum, Mt. Talinis.

The Philippine Nightjar (Caprimulgus manillensis) is a species of nightjar in the Caprimulgidae family. It is endemic to the Philippines.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Pechora Pipit (Documentary Shot)

These are the document shots of Pechora Pipit(Anthus gustavi) at Mabinay Spring, Negros Oriental on November 10, 2012 and the location was 20 meters distance from the restroom. It was a low light situation because I started birding at 5AM in the morning. Now, i’m on the location I noticed something running on the ground so I switch-on my built-in flash to get ready but suddenly it appears 3 Pipits in front of me and running so fast that’s why I got only 3 photos on the process. Since then I never saw them again on the same day and month last year.Image
