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

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
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.
