Travel Photography: Bird Sanctuary Wetlands - Candaba, Pampanga

January 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Looking for a nice bird watching experience? Then Candaba is worth a visit.

If this is your first time birding (that’s the official term for bird watching), you must remember this: birds don’t fly all day. They hang around. If you want to see flocks of flying birds, go early in the morning or late in the afternoon.

The wetlands of Candaba in Pampanga is (2nd) home to a variety of migratory birds during the months of November to February (late autumn - winter in the northern hemisphere). Candaba swamp is a vast complex of freshwater ponds, swamps and marshes with surrounding areas of seasonally flooded grassland, arable land and palm savanna on a vast alluvial flood plain. The entire area is usually flooded in the wet season, but most of it dries out during the dry season and is converted into rice fields and plantations of water melons.
