As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Hornbill bird survey to start in Panay

November 25, 2015

Iloilo — By next year, researchers will find out how many of the endangered hornbill bird species still exist in Panay Island.

The Biodiversity Partnership Project of the Region 6 office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-6) will lead the first simultaneous hornbill count in the central Panay mountains.

In collaboration with the Philippine Biodiversity Conservation Foundation Inc. (PBCFI), the survey will try to establish the existence of hornbills, which are only endemic to Panay and Negros Islands.
Over the years, the International Union for Conservation of Nature has classified the Visayan Tarictic as endangered while the dulungan (also known as Rufous-Headed) hornbill as critically endangered.
