Dolina,
You certainly live in a place with lots of exotic birds, not to mention a great collection of gear.
Please keep us fascinated by your beautiful photos!

My head almost exploded looking at this picture. Damn, this must be worth of what some small towns have for a yearly budget :D

Barred buttonquail (Turnix suscitator) by alabang, on Flickr

A typical Barred buttonquail or common bustard-quail (Turnix suscitator), rufous-brown above, rusty and buff below. Chin, throat and breast closely barred with black. Female larger and more richly coloured, with throat and middle of breast black. The blue-grey bill and legs, and yellowish white eyes are diagnostic, as are also the pale buff shoulder-patches on the wings when in flight. Absence of hind toe distinguishes Bustard and Button quails from true quails. Pairs, in scrub and grassland.

Unlike other buttonquail, are not as difficult to see, since it tends to cross, or run along, savannah tracks, and is readily viewed from a vehicle.
Feeds on insects and seeds, and is reluctant to fly.

The calls are a motorcycle-like drr-r-r-r-r-r and a loud hoon- hoon-hoon.

Luzon hornbill (Penelopides manillae) by alabang, on Flickr

The Luzon hornbill (Penelopides manillae), sometimes called Luzon tarictic hornbill, is a species of hornbill in the Bucerotidae family. It is endemic to forests on Luzon and nearby islands in the northern Philippines. As is the case with all Philippine tarictic hornbills, it has been considered a subspecies of P. panini.

There are two subspecies of the Luzon hornbill: the relatively widespread nominate subspecies, and subniger from the islands of Polillo and Patnanongan. It was hunted for meat, but is now considered to be safe, as a new hunting ban has been enforced.

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.

Dolina,
The front row of that flock seem quite nervous, judging by the look on their faces.  Perhaps that’s why they flock together like that!
