Birdwatching in Candaba, March 6, 2005

Common Kingfisher

I've recently got into birdwatching and I've found it quite fascinating!  Here are some of the pictures of birds we saw (out of 40 species!)  I only used a digital camera inserted into a scope and I was truly amazed I was able to get some pictures to post on the web.
