Cattle Egrets in identified migratory sites in Antique

 

The result of this year’s waterfowl census in the province of Antique recorded a total 1,474 birds in five identified migratory sites.  During the survey, Cattle Egrets have the highest population at 1,044 counted from different identified migratory sites.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Antique, under the Asian Waterbird Census (AWC), recorded the greatest concentration of Cattle Egrets at Lipata, Culasi with a total of 813. It was followed by Little Egret at 166.

The AWC is an annual activity that is internationally implemented which aims to obtain information on an annual basis of waterbird populations in wetlands as a basis for evaluation of sites and monitoring of migratory birds population.

The DENR in Antique conducted the sampling in the same sites that were visited in the previous years in the five identified migratory sites in Brgy. Lapaz, Hamtic; Brgy. Supa, San Jose; Brgy. Cubay-Napultan, Sibalom; Brgy. Ilaures, Bugasong; and  Brgy. Lipata, Culasi on January 20-24.

The result of this year’s waterfowl census in the province recorded a total 1,474 birds. During the survey, the Cattle Egrets has the highest population at 1,044 counted from different identified migratory sites.

There were also 15 other migratory bird species identified, among them were --Intermediate Egret, Grey Heron, Black Winged Stilt, Little Egret, Common Sandpiper, Javan Pond Heron, Green Shank, Pacific  Golden Plover, Yellow Bittern, Unidentified Shorebirds, Unidentified Herons & Egrets, Cattle Egret, Little Egret,  Little Ringed Plover,  Barred Rail and Purple Heron.

There were also unidentified species of shorebirds, herons and egrets because they were on flight hence, the team could not indicate their specific species. 

The AWC Team who conducted the waterbird census were DENR PAWD technical staff Royce Placito, For. Renato Andraje  together with  PENRO PAWS  Coordinator Vivian  Develos,  PENRO Public Information Officer Beverly Lyneth Salvan, CENRO, San Jose  PAWCZMS Coordinator Merlinda Sargento and CENRO Culasi Ecosystems Management Specialist II Melissa Aprentado. The team was equipped with binoculars and digital spotting scope. The data were encoded using the AWC (Southeast Asia ) Count Form.

The AWC also aims to monitor the status and condition of wetlands and encourages greater interest in waterbirds and wetlands and promote the conservation of wetlands and waterbirds in the country.

The data collected from all regional offices of the DENR will be consolidated and assessed by the Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB), formerly Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau of DENR. The BMB is the national coordinator of the AWC in the country.
