Paralaya, Candaba, Pampanga

Bgy Paralaya, Candaba, Pampanga

Birders: Trinket Canlas, Adri Constantino, Drew Galano, Mike Lu, Abby Santos


Data was submitted to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources as part of our contribution to the Asian Waterbird Census.
Bgy Paralaya is to the east of the town of Candaba. From the Candaba town hall, take the side street on the left side of the building and drive out until you reach the ricefields which stretches as far as the eyes can see. We have surveyed only a small part of the fields.
This is a good site and should be part of the AWC site for Candaba henceforth.
