Avian Treasures of the Philippines (HD video)

I've started to collate the bird videos I've captured with the 5D2 + 400 - 1600 mm lenses. Here's sharing the first series, comprised of 8 species many of which are endemic to our islands.

Romy,

The second series is even better than the first. I liked the mix of wild sounds and background music. The Bee-eater clip was particularly enjoyable.

( I think I am rapidly becoming your Number One Fan! )
