Grey-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) by alabang, on Flickr

The  Grey-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) is a species of  bird  in the Nectariniidae family. It is found in a wide range of  semi-open  wooded habitats in the northern and eastern part of the  Philippines. It  is often considered a subspecies of the Brown-throated  Sunbird, but  the two differ consistently in measurements and plumage,  and there is  no evidence of intergradation between them.[1] It has not  been rated by  BirdLife International (and consequently IUCN), but is  generally  common and therefore unlikely to be threatened.

Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis) by alabang, on Flickr

Buff-banded "Buff-banded Rail" Candaba "Candaba Pampanga" Gallirallus "Gallirallus philippensis" Pampanga philippensis "Philippine birds" Philippines Rail
Caption- Abstract    The Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis) is a distinctively coloured, highly dispersive, medium-sized rail of the family Rallidae. This species comprises several subspecies found throughout much of Australasia and the south-west Pacific region, including the Philippines (where it is known as Tikling), New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand (where it is known as the Banded Rail or Moho-pereru in Māori),[2] and numerous smaller islands, covering a range of latitudes from the tropics to the Subantarctic.

It is a largely terrestrial bird the size of a small domestic chicken, with mainly brown upperparts, finely banded black and white underparts, a white eyebrow, chestnut band running from the bill round the nape, with a buff band on the breast. It utilises a range of moist or wetland habitats with low, dense vegetation for cover. It is usually quite shy but may become very tame and bold in some circumstances, such as in island resorts within the Great Barrier Reef region.[3]

The Buff-banded Rail is an omnivorous scavenger which feeds on a range of terrestrial invertebrates and small vertebrates, seeds, fallen fruit and other vegetable matter, as well as carrion and refuse. Its nest is usually situated in dense grassy or reedy vegetation close to water, with a clutch size of 3-4. Although some island populations may be threatened, or even exterminated, by introduced predators, the species as a whole appears to be safe and its conservation status is considered to be of Least Concern.

Coppersmith Barbet,(Megalaima haemacephala), by alabang, on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

Many may be surprised by this but this is my first owl, ever. So pardon the rather ugly image quality.


Philippine Scops Owl (Otus megalotis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Philippine scops owl (Otus megalotis) is a common owl, endemic to the Philippines, belonging to the family of the typical owls Strigidae. Everett's scops owl and Negros scops owls were formerly considered conspecific.

Philippine scops owls prey at night on insects. They live alone or in monogamous pairs. They breed throughout the year, laying clutches of 1-2 eggs. They nest in trees holes in lowland forests of Luzon, Catanduanes and Marinduque.
