Later at IRRI Staff Housing (ISH) several common garden species such as Yellow-vented Bulbuls, Olive-backed Sunbirds and Brown Shrikes. A medium-sized raptor far overhead looks like it might have been a migrant Rufous-bellied Eagle
Ashy Minivet. One flock of a dozen or so came and went several times in the morning.
Bar-bellied Cuckoo-Shrike ssp. striata. Again this individual's barring is restricted to the vent only, but this is the only species in the Philippines with a white eye.
Coleto. A group of 5 birds commuted between the dead tree and the fig tree.
Philippine Falconet. This bird was followed around by a swarm of what look like tiny bees, or maybe flies.
Stripe-headed Rhabdornis. This individual was in a nearby tree, but they also visited the fig.
Yellow-wattled Bulbul A pair were feeding quietly in the fig tree, surrounded by much noisier Philippine Bulbuls.
Coppersmith. Several birds in the fig, and on the adjacent dead tree. This one was in fact in my garden at ISH.
Yellow-vented Bulbul In ISH, probably the commonest bird in The Philippines
Flying high over ISH, I couldn't make out what this was at all at first. The head pattern looks like an adult Rufous-bellied Eagle, but the underwings don't seem right. Possibly this is an intermediate plumage between a juvenile and an adult.
