Flights of Fancy eBook Excerpt: Philippine Pygmy Woodpecker Spotted in Maligcong, Bontoc

I know the cliche - this bird goes tap, tap, tap.  In reality, he/she really does.  Rather aloof, the few times I did spot the Philippine Pygmy Woodpecker, it has always been partly obscured by leaves, tree trunk or branches.   I'm still searching for a more optimum capture but it's quite a struggle as a storm and recent clean-up activities have cleared some of the trees in the periphery of the homestay where I've last spotted one.  My friend, Tina (Paspas) told me she saw one in the summit of Mt Kupapey.   Maybe next trip, I would have to hie off to the mountains and try to spot one.  Or two.  | © 2018 Oggie Ramos | Taken with a Nikon B700, Handheld, Manual Mode
