    Hi Andy, Glad to hear you are interested - I can send you a PM with some more details if you like? Whether the Finfoot might be easier to find during the Monsoon while breeding is something that I have wondered about myself. But Birdquest and Birdtour Asia go in December and/or February. I...

    Hi Josh - Thanks! I think you already did the hardest part in organizing the first non-commercial group and finding a spot for the Finfoot (where it seems they are still being seen, hopefully they hang around there for a few more months!). Cheers, Michael

    Great Indian Bustard + NE India (Assam + Arunachal Pradesh) late March- mid April 2022

    I didn't get to Eaglenest (or anywhere else in Arunachal Pradesh) at all due to permit issues. I kept hoping/getting told that PAPs would start to be issued in a few days and then there would be more problems and delays. Very inconvenient since continually rearranging my plans meant I couldn't...

    Visayan Miniature Babbler. Info for site of recent observation.

    Hi Alan, I think it is a good site for Mindanao Bleeding-heart. Though having said that I still didn't get tickable views in 3 days of trying at the site. But the bird(s) were calling and sometimes responding all three days at the site, although how much varied a lot between the days...

    Visayan Miniature Babbler. Info for site of recent observation.

    I really should have already put something on birdforum about access to the location where I was very fortunate to recently see Leyte plumed warblers (=Visayan Miniature Babbler ) and take some photos so that I could believe my own eyes! I hope the following information may be of some use...

    Philippines - possibly usefull info for independent trips

    Forgot to add: -The jeepney I got had a sign saying Honda Bay on the front. -The fee to see the owl would be less per person for a group, I was told. - And I think the cost for the boats to the islands can be split amongst a group.
