Two weeks in Luzon

I have just got back from Luzon, I have not (yet?) written a detailed trip report but I do have a bird list by site if anyone is interested. Somewhat over 150 species were seen of which at least 42 were endemic depending on one's views on splits....

Hi Nick,

Maybe I should have added (Philippines), it is the island in which Manila is situated. If you would like a list I can send it to you. In spite of human pressure on the environment there is still some great birding to be had and of course it is a fantastic spot for endemics. The Philippine archipelago is home to around 200 endemics, depending which taxonomy you use. I saw well over 40 in just the Manila area.

Sorry to be ignorant, thought it was somewhere in Switzerland!
