I am departing for the Far East (Japan and Luzon, PI) Thr Jan 24, and only just now found this website!
I am seeking information on Kyushu in January, Luzon in Feb, and the Ryukyu Islands in early March.
I would greatly appreciate hearing frrm anyone knowing Kyushu and the area around the Arasaki Crane Sanctuary and other sites that might yield Asian rarieties. Please respond ASAP, thank-you. I will also call back any international caller, if I might be so lucky.
In late Feb I will be in Luzon. If you have birded there and might have some suggestions, I still have several weeks and I would be very grateful for any help you can provide.
Best wishes, and may the bird of euphoria perch on your shoulder!
