Birding in Quezon City

Yeah, so TJ and I have been going around the city and taking as many pics of birds as we can. It hasn’t quite yet reached the level of obsession yet, but we’ve gotten to the point where we stop and look around whenever we see something flying around or hear birdsong. Oh, and we’ve finally figured out what kinds of birds are the ones that hang out by shopping malls at night: They’re swallows.

So here are some of the pics of birds I’ve managed to take so far. Spotted these in different places, mainly, UP Diliman, La Mesa Ecopark, and our neighborhood.

Brown shrike? Posing rather cutely, I must say.

We took a pic of a white-collared kingfisher perched high up on a tree, but we’re hoping for better pics soon. We also spotted tawny grassbirds, a yellow-bellied flyeater, and a pygmy woodpecker, but have yet to get great pictures of them. TJ also spotted pied fantails and a colasisi near his workplace.

Basically, we’ve run through the list of 10 most common urban birds, and we can’t wait to see what other birds are out there.

Check out TJ’s awesome pics here.
