I saw Blue-breasted Flycatcher on about five different occasions mainly in the Hamut Valley. One single Furtive Flycatcher came in to tape about 1/3 up the way from Palay in degraded bamboo, and the same area provided "good flushed" views of a Luzon Bleeding-heart as well as a perched female Black-chinned Fruit-Dove.

Woodpecker and Blue-breasted Flycatcher were seen by some. Then we walked down to Baliwag, a physically draining trek in the very hot conditions – a record 39 degrees in Tuguegarao! The highlight was a magnificent male Pied Harrier that eventually flew overhead while quartering the extensive grassland. It flushed another male. We finally staggered into Aquilino’s house at 1 pm and rehydrated with many litres of water, then drove in his jeepney to Tuguegarao where Gabby was waiting to take us to Banaue. More

Blue-breasted Flycatcher, while Rich Hopf, who accompanied me for 4 weeks, saw an additional 4 endemic species, and Mike Archer one. Our list totalled 347 plus 2 owls only heard. Birding in the Philippines is not easy due to the shyness and scarcity of many birds and the large distance between key sites. However, as English is widely spoken, public transport highly developed and Filipinos invariably friendly, a visit is an enjoyable experience. More
