  • Tarak Ridge In Bataan

    I used to believe that breaking up with someone should be done in person, face to face. But when I asked one of my friends fresh from break-up, after 6 hours of long, arduous trek, 1,006 MASL, in the comforts of our temporary home along the ridge in Tarak, "Paano kayo nag break?"

    Early Saturday (March 4) morning I got a Facebook PM from birding friend Bim Quemado. "If you're interested, the White-fronted Tit is easy here at Subic" was his message. A couple of weeks earlier, our friends from the Baguio-Benguet Birding Group also posted photos of this species. The White-fronted Tit was my nemesis bird. Cynthia and I never saw it despite our many attempts.

    Sunday afternoon we drove to Subic and proceeded right away to the place Bim said he saw the Tit. Three hours of searching and nada. Early the following day we went back. Again, three hours of waiting and staring at ...
