A reunion with some mountain birds

Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites

After months of no serious birding, I found some time to drive to Baguio and try my luck at Camp John Hay's Eco Trail. I walked the slippery path down to the small stream,
and encountered a bird wave along the way. Light was very low under the canopy of pine trees so I had to shoot at high ISOs. I had a blast trying to focus at the small birds
in dim lighting - just a couple of hours of birding allowed me to meet quite a few montane feathered friends again.
