The Oriental Bird Club (OBC) is a UK-registered charity “for birders and ornithologists around the world who are interested in birds of the Oriental region and their conservation.” It is run by a dedicated team of volunteers. OBC has two publications:  Forktail, a scientific journal which is published once a year and BirdingAsia, the OBC bulletin which is published twice a year. OBC also maintains Oriental Bird Images (OBI), an online database of bird images from the Oriental Region contributed by various photographers as well as a mailing list that is open to non-members. OBC also supports conservation work in the region through grants funded by members and corporate sponsors. The OBC representatives for the Philippines are  Carmela Española and Arne Jensen.

Membership to OBC is open to all. Sign ups can be done on their website. All members receive a copy of their two publications Forktail and BirdingAsia.

    Megan I agree with you. I live in Pennsylvania and there are two stores in my State, one is 6 hours from me the other is 3 1/2. I have 3 retail stores and all three are over an hour away My husband thinks I’m crazy because I take several road trips to the Vera store and retail stores Spring, Summer, and Fall. I don’t make any trips during the winter.
