Philippine Birds : Baler , Aurora by Neon Rosell II

Neon Rosell most likely has the largest number of images of birds of the Philippines among amateur Filipino photographers.  They are not only very stunning but also very informative.Neon not only includes the common name but also the scientific name of the each bird, well most of the images.

Here we present his bird images taken by Neon in Baler, Aurora and along the and along the Bongabong-Baler Highway. [His other sets will be featured in the future.]

What I find most informative about his collection of Philippines birds is that most of the images were taken at the actual habitat.  This is very critical because the Philippines is losing at an alarming rate many of its forests, land and water habitats because of explosive population growth.

Poor squeezed by high prices, food shortages

MANILA, 6 May 2008 (IRIN) - "This is a big help,” says 35-year-old Leonardo Zafra, a security guard at a small inn in Manila, after a customer hands him a 20 peso (50 US cent) tip. The 260 pesos he receives for 12 hours of work each day is hardly enough to support his family of six in Rizal, a nearby province. He spends 60 pesos a day commuting, and spends the rest on school expenses, utilities and food.
