This Part II of the series includes an extremely rare footage (4K or otherwise) of the Pygmy Flowerpecker (Dicaeum pygmaeum). This bird, found only in the Philippines, is just about 3 inches in total length from tip of bill to tip of tail. Its tiny size and skittish behavior make filming it in the wild a very tough job.
There are over 600 species of Philippine birds, and about a third of these are endemic to our islands. Over 10% of these species are globally threatened.
By filming these magnificent winged creatures in their natural habitat and sharing the high-resolution footage, I hope that in my own little way, I can help raise awareness for the protection of their habitat.
