Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and A. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the Silvery Kingfisher of the southern Philippines.[1]
The Indigo-banded Kingfisher feeds on fish and aquatic insects. It perches on rocks and overhanging branches and foliage and dives steeply into the water to catch its prey. Once caught, it returns the prey to the perch where it is beaten and swallowed. Little is known about its breeding behaviour, although it is known to nest in tunnels dug into the banks of streams and rivers.[1]
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

Good stuff Paolo. Do you still have the 800 or did you sell it to get the new 600?

The photo above was taken 48 hours ago. ;) I am trying to unload my 500/4.0 IS towards a purchase of the 600/4.0 IS II.

For those interested both the Indigo and Spotted Kingfishers are readily viewable today within Metro Manila.

Very easy birds to take photos of. A 400mm + crop body can easily take up 1/3rd the frame.

This is the route from Manila International Airport Terminal 1 to La Mesa Ecopark that is less than 31km according to Google Maps. From the Ecopark's entrance it is less than a 1km walk to the shooting site through a partially asphalted foot path.

https://maps.google.co​m …erminal+1&mra=l​s&t=m&z=13 (external link)

In terms of number of bird photogs/watchers at any given time I normally count half a dozen at most.

As for hotel accommodations there are a lot of hotels near the Ecopark to stay at for reasonable rates. Just read the reviews for the hotels near by and match them to your comfort level.

I do not know how much it costs to travel there via taxi but it should not cost more than 1,000 Philippine Pesos.

Entrance to Ecopark is free for "bird watchers". Just show them your bins or camera for proof.

Spend a weekend here for Philippine endemics. It is more ideal to visit during weekdays. Less weekend crowd jogging, walking or biking.

A 320ml bottle of Pale Pilsen beer starts at 26 Philippine Pesos. ;)

Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) is a cosmopolitan species of heron (family Ardeidae) found in the tropics, subtropics and warm temperate zones. It is the only member of the monotypic genus Bubulcus, although some authorities regard its two subspecies as full species, the Western Cattle Egret and the Eastern Cattle Egret. Despite the similarities in plumage to the egrets of the genus Egretta, it is more closely related to the herons of Ardea. Originally native to parts of Asia, Africa and Europe, it has undergone a rapid expansion in its distribution and successfully colonised much of the rest of the world.

Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world.[2] It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.[2] In Anglophone Europe it is just called the Swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".

Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.
