Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata) on Siargao island

A Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata) Lifer on a Rainy Morning

With typhoon Lan (local name Paolo) passing by Siargao to the east and school canceled for the day, it seemed like a good time to go birding with The Teen and look around for vagrant or accidental birds blown inland by the offshore weather.

A purple heron with some egrets

Herons and egrets this morning in del Pilar

Though time only permitted a quick birding hike this morning, I was able to spy a purple heron and some pond herons amongst the egrets in the rice fields of del Pilar here on Siargao Island.
