Updates have been a little slow of late after I took a spill down a mountainside just after photographing that Handsome Sunbird nest. Being temporarily restricted to sedentary observation of our backyard birds, I thought I’d showcase those seen most commonly around our house these days.
Looks like there’s some pelagic birding in store for next weekend though so be sure and stay tuned! In the meanwhile, let’s take a look at some recent photos of Siargao’s most frequently seen backyard birds…
Regular followers of our WildSiargao Facebook page will be familiar with the recent local abundance of this tailorbird which is limited in range to the Southern Philippines. They seem to be nesting, hatching, and learning to fly all over the place at the moment!
All of these ‘backyard birds’ can be seen reliably around here on any given day so drop by anytime and we’ll be happy to point them out for you!
