Hi Jon, a practical question from a fellow globetrottiing birder from Finland, who is going to visit East New Britain solo.

- Would you know if there is any other place to stay in Kimbe, other than the very expensive Walindi Resort (USD 200+/night)? Queen's Head has been closed and I have not been able to find any information on Hoskins Hotel anywhere (net, LP).

with regards,

Petri Hottola

Hello Jon,

 

I am a PhD student in the UK working on neotropical bird community assembly. I have a copy of your Cotinga 1999 publication titled 'The birds of Abra Patricia and the upper Rio Mayo, San Martin, north Peru'. I would really like to use the bird lists it contains in my analysis. But to be able to do this I need to know the area of each of the sites you surveyed; Aguas verdes, above afluente, on and near the Garcia ridge, and on the trail at 1900-2300m elevation.

 

If you do know the size of the area you surveyed, please could you email me this information. If you do not know, but can estimate it to within about 100 hectares that is also very helpful.

 

Thank you,

 

Chris Trisos

Hi Steve

I'm not aware of posting one on this site, is it on OBpix? All my photos of it will be slides of birds in the hand on Panay, I can check them. I dont remember any females but there were 2 plumages for sure. Who's the main decision-maker on the latest Phil splits? Good for my list but why no Palawan Frogmouth or Camiguin Bulbul?

Cheers, Jon

Hi Jon,

In view of the recent split of Copsychus superciliaris, and considering that morphological descriptions seem to be very scant, Des Allen and I recently considered this question, and one of your photos came up for discussion as to whether or not the sex of the bird is correct.

Cheers,

Steve

Hello Jon. I just wanted to say that you have a nice birding website. And I want to thank you for your reply my question. I was also wondering if you will be posting anymore trip reports for Philippines? I will visit there soon and I would like to do research first before going. Do you have a current email address where I can reach you at?

Troy
