We made a number of visits to the Panti Bird Sanctuary in June and there were still some birds nesting and we saw many active young birds.
The weather has been dry recently and there was some dust kicked up from passing vehicles, but not as much as in some previous years, given that the logging is no longer underway.
We were lucky to see a number of birds that are not commonly seen outside the forests and saw many young, Black-naped Monarchs chasing each other in the trees.
We also came across a group of 5 Dusky Broadbills all helping to build a really huge nest. This communal nest building is evidently common.
Early one morning we saw a pair of Cinnamon-headed Green Pigeons which was a lifer for us and an unexpected bonus.

Considering the pace of development in the area, it was good to see that most of the species are still managing to survive and many are flourishing.
