Although we did not see a lot of birds on our third day, those we saw were very friendly. They would even come close that some of our shots were full frame!
First off were the Balicassiaos
Then a Guaiabero were as curious about us as we of it.
The highlight was when a Rough-crested Malkoha, normally a skulker, not only popped-put in the open, it was so close to us and even gave us several poses.
Not to be outdone was a Philippine Bulbul who even chose a flower (fruit?) to perch on.
When we went to the area near the bay, this Philippine Pygmy Woodpecker was so focused on finding its food sometimes just a few feet away from us.
Finally, a White-throated Kingfisher just sat on the wire as we took pictures of it from our car window. Which we found rather strange because the past couple of days, they would fly off as we try to approach it in our vehicle.
