  3. This is a collection of bird footages taken at Villa Escudero, Quezon, Philippines, using a pre-production Canon 5D Mark II. The 1920x1080 capture was edited, background music was added, and converted to a 1280x720 wmv file.

    Re-edited Dec. 12, 2008 - Fine tuned the opening titles, changed the background music, removed the ambient sound during the slomo portion of the Brown Shrike, and shortened the transition periods. (Correction - the Collared Kingfisher was erroneously labeled as "endemic"..... it's in fact a resident bird and also ranges in many areas outside the Philippines. The 172 MB file is just too large to re-upload).
