This is a 4-part video of a trip to Mindanao, Palawan and Luzon in March 2015 with http://www.birdguidingphilippines.com and led by Bram Demeulemeester. The film begins in Manila on Luzon where we have an afternoon trip through the city and out to the Angono Petroglyphs to see Philippine eagle-owl. Here we also see brown-breasted kingfisher.

Next day we fly to Mindanao in the south, and trek to our camp near Mount Kitanglad. Near the camp we see little pied flycatcher, stripe-breasted rhabdornis, sulphur-billed nuthatch, very brief cinnamon ibon, black-and-cinnamon fantail and McGregor's cuckoo-shrike.

We then head higher up to the eagle watchpoint, seeing paddyfield pipit on the way up. Here we see crested honey-buzard and on our 2nd day at the viewpoint, a magnificent great Philippine eagle. We then head higher still where we see Apo mynah, mountain white-eye, island thrush and Apo sunbird. On the way back down we see Mindanao hornbill, and at dusk a flypast Bukidnon woodcock, Philippine frogmouth and Everett's scops-owl.

Next day we head back down the mountain, with tawny grassbird and olive-backed sunbird on the way. Then it's a long drive to P.I.C.O.P near Bislig, where we head out before light and see giant scops-owl and Mindanao hawk-owl. In daylight we see rufous paradise-flycatcher, rufous-tailed jungle-flycatcher, black-naped oriole, short-crested monarch and Philippine falconet.

We then head to a small pond where we see silvery kingfisher, plain bush-hen, rufous-fronted tailorbird and purple-throated sunbird. In the evening we visit Bislig airfield and see a juvenile plaintive cuckoo and a grass owl. Continued in Part 2.
