Wild Birds of the Philippines

Philippines is a collective 7100 tropical islands comprising the Luzon, Visayas Mindanao Group of Islands. It was ones told by Robert Kennedy, Timothy Fisher, et al. as still among the most poorly known in the world of ornithology though richly diversified by about 600+ endemic and migratory birds. But in the event of avian awareness spearheaded by Haribon Foundation Inc. in 1972, birdwatchers began observing and recording avian sights and sounds. Since then, several clubs, organizations and individuals advocated birding. Sometime in September 2012 the Wild Bird Photographers of the Philippines was organized throughout the archipelago to build better avian records in the Philippines.
