Our team conducted a census of migratory birds in areas of Manila Bay where the new airport will be constructed. When we arrived at the docking area, the sky was lit with a yellowish glow from the moon and the air was so cool. We wished for Spoonies and were not disappointed – we got 24 Spooniefuls 🤗 At one point we were almost knocked off our boat as each of us was trying to get a better view. They were too far but there was no mistaking that face! Take a look at that weird profile. Google its name and you won’t be disappointed 😁
