Pre-Labor Day La Mesa

Ended April with a full morning well-spent in La Mesa Ecopark.



The Colasisis were up and about in the parking lot...


and the Ashy Thrushes were in a sing-song mood (so were the Hooded Pittas and the Asian Koel!)


The Lowland White-eyes were busy building nests...


and the Black-naped Orioles were flying about.


Some Brown Shrikes still made an appearance...


and some Philippine Pygmy Woodpeckers were busy feeding.


A Lipote tree was heavy with fruit...


... and the trail was pretty quiet and mostly human-free.


The White-throated Kingfisher was in its usual area...


... and a Philippine Coucal came out from skulking.


It was a VERY hot day but cooled down with crema de leche at Mang Jose.



'Til our next visit, La Mesa! Next time, hopefully, for a full day =)
