The annual Asian Waterbird Census of birds done in Kalinga recently resulted in the counting of 377 migratory egrets and 113 terns counted in the barangays Cabaritan and Tuga while 4,214 migratory egrets and 13 Philippine wild ducks were counted at Bulo lake, Bulo, Tabuk City, Kalinga. As related by PENRO Noel Barrientos of PENRO Kalinga, there is a decrease in the number of waterbirds counted compared to the previous years.
The ACW focal person Rizalie Pineda-Alcantara of DENR-CAR said that the decrease of waterbirds counted for this year in the same site raises an alarm which entails the need for a dynamic and continuous conduct of Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) for the different stakeholders and the community to involve themeselves in the protection and preservation of these birds and their environment.
The experience however for this year’s bird watching and counting was rewarding as the participants were able to witness the flock of birds gracefully flying like a swarm of bees, moving in twist and turn as though they were dancing in the air. This is a mystery up to the present on how or why these birds fly in such manner, but researchers have speculated that this is their defense mechanism from possible predators by confusing them. Nevertheless, such is an amazing sight worthy of protecting and preserving for the future generation to enjoy and appreciate.
