Birding Mount Makiling, IRRI and other Philippine locations

End of July
An odd record of a Philippine Woodpecker on the farms today. They normally are in on near the forested areas on the mountain, but do occasionally stray. A few Lowland White-eye in the tree at the same time, so 2 Phil endemics together which was nice. Wood Sandpiper numbers are building up, and Barn Swallows are increasing too. Oddly all the Cattle Egrets seem to have disappeared, but there are several aggregations of Little Egrets, including juveniles.
