As many BC readers know by now, I've been going batty with the lack of birding action during my current trip to Southeast Asia. Am now in Jakarta, Indonesia.
But it looks like I'll be heading out next Saturday for some birding at a great site outside this huge city with the owner of the Jakarta Birding blog as my guide and companion. Then home to my sweetie. Hooray on both counts (especially the second one)!
Meanwhile, here is a pic of some Fruit Bats hanging out in a tree in the southern Philippine island of Tawi-Tawi. The photo doesn't really do these things justice - they are ginormous. They also taste yummy, or so I was told. Didn't get a chance to partake.
