Conservation Status: Least ConcernBy Ali Bernie Buga-ay / Editor
The Mountain hawk-eagle or Nisaetus nipalensis is also called the Hodgson’s Hawk-eagle, is a bird of prey which is breeding in the Indian subcontinent, India, Nepal through Bangladesh to Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia and Japan. I have mistaken this raptor for another and I am glad that I found the right identification to add into my collection.
Khao Yai National Park has a lot of surprises and one cannot know when will it show up. With a watchful eye, there is so much to discover; most of the wildlife viewing is contained within the paved roads and to get inside the jungle needs a special permission. Sometimes these animals just come out and reveal themselves to us, some special moments.

Pelagic Birding: Pangitlogan Island, Siargao, Philippines
I am posting this to honour Dr. MiguelDavid De Leon for his conservation effort of the terns in Siargao, particularly, Pangitlogan Island, Tuyo Ka Bato, Siargao, in Mindanao. His effort brought people to work together in order to help his pioneering conservation program in saving the eggs of the terns from being taken by the locals for food. With his presentation, people understood that they don’t have to take the eggs and allow the terns to lay and hatch their kind to be take home on their return flight. The Bridled Terns, Roseate Terns, Black-naped terns come every year to lay their eggs and fulfil their migration objectives.
Miguel brought all government agencies at one table and collected their voluntary commitments in preserving and conserving the given areas that required immediate attention. Thank you Dr. Miguel David De Leon for giving us the opportunity to work with you. I have yet to find a man who accepted me and Harry Miller unconditionally and that will do whatever it takes to achieve conservation absent recognition and reward. God Bless you and will keep you safe always.
Meanwhile, I am at Mactan International Airport waiting for my flight to Bangkok,…
