Sunset from Deer Hill

View of sunset from Deer Hill, Zone C

 After clearing some bushes and treelets at the highest point of Zone C, i.e. at Deer Hill, I noticed a spectacular view of the sunset can be observed there.  Looking towards the western horizon, the varying colours of the sunset looked expansive and overwhelming.   Of course, previously I would view the sunset from Licuala Hill.  The view from Deer Hill is equally awesome.  Below are more pictures that I took a couple of days ago.

Note: The above pictures were also shared earlier in my facebook posting.

Black birds are back for black berries.

 The black birds are back again.  They are coming in big flocks.  They make the park sounds busy and noisy.  These birds belong to the Philippines Glossy Starling species. At present they come here to enjoy the delicious berries of the Eugenia oleina trees.  Since these trees are planted at every corner of the park, the excitement is seen everywhere.  These birds flock to the branches that are laden with the black berries and then they might take a rest at nearby perches.  They arrival are most welcomed here.
