The excellent and easy accessible lowland rainforest which is protected in the Subic Bay Freeport zone is definitely one of the most bird rich sites in the Philippines which guarantees some easy birding, to Filipino standards at least.  Therefore, Subic possibly has the best introduction to birding in the Philippines with a number of endemics and specialities present. (

This ecotour aims to give participants an opportunity to learn about the biodiversity in the forests of Subic. Together with a bird photographer, we will be going on a guided birdwatching trail and learning the basics of bird photography. We will be visiting 2 venues for birdwatching. The first area is
located in the roadsides within the suburbs, and the second is in the forest. The forest trail is very beginner-friendly, consisting of flat terrain.

This will also be an opportunity for participants to learn about the forests that the Aetas have called home since the days of their early ancestors. The Aetas of Subic Bay live in one of the few remaining untouched rainforest areas in the Philippines. During our guided hike, Aetas will tour you around
the forest while explaining the different plants that can be used for medicines or protective uses. They will also show you how they steam rice inside bamboo and cook using fire, and demonstrate survival tactics in the forest. (Subic Tourism)
