We woke up raring to bird so after breakfast, we headed out. I was going to be with the group only until lunch because I had to go back to Manila that afternoon.
Our first stop was Subic's colony of Flying Foxes.
Walking forward, we came across a pair of Philippine Green Pigeons.

While shooting the pigeon, a Guiabero perched on the tree beside us, enabling very close captures.

Across the street, we saw a Coleto.
And back on our side of the road, we saw a Coppersmith Barbet.
We reached the area near Crown Peak where we saw several birds.
Philippne Pygmy Woodpecker
Striped-headed Rhabdornis, lifer #205
Philippine Hanging Parrot or Colasisi
Blue-naped Parrot, Pikoy in Pilipino
Philippine Bulbul, another appearance just before we went to have lunch.
Aside from these, we also sa a Blue-throated Bee Eater, Oriental Cuckoo Shrike, Crows, Collared Kingfisher, and Drongo. We were hoping to see a Luzon Hornbill, Green Racquet Tail, and the different woodpeckers of Subic.
After lunch, we headed back to the hotel for a short rest. Kris brought me to a bus station so I can catch a bus to Manila. I told the group that I will see them in two days at the hotel of Rafael and Marta (how wrong I was!).
