CANDABA / Bataan / Subic / Pangasinan
Early morning departure for Candaba Wildlife Conservation Park in Sitio Simang, Barangay Visal in Pampanga. Candaba is a complex wetland of water ponds, swamps and marshes with surrounding areas of grassland and arable land. The entire area is usually flooded in the wet season and dries out during the dry season. Candaba Marsh has a wide variety of wetland birds including the Philippine Duck, Purple Swamp hen and Pheasant-tailed Jacana plus a large variety of egrets, herons, bitterns and migratory waterfowls.
Next, proceed to Bataan Peninsula which lies along what is known as the East Asian-Australia Flyway, and is an attractive stop-over for migrating forest and water birds. There are 3 bird watching areas here: Puerto Rivas-Ibaba, known for dried and smoked fish, which has a preserved thick mangrove forest, grassland and wetland areas that serve as favorable roosting grounds for crows, waterhens, rails, kites, doves, herons and egrets; Tortugas- it’s mangroves and mudflat are excellent roosting and feeding grounds for waders and waterbirds such as Wood Sandpiper, Great Egret, Whimbrel, Whiskered Tern, and fishpond and wetlands that have become ideal habitats for various types of migratory and resident birds. While resident birds can be seen all year round, massive numbers of migratory birds specifically flock to the site from September to March. Dinner and overnight in Bataan.
Other activities in the area: trekking, jungle survival adventure, historical tours, cultural tours, nature tours, diving, swimming, golf, horseback-riding, spelunking and shopping.
Enjoy a 30-minute boat ride across Tambac Bay going to the boardwalk structure and mangroves.

Among the birds that can be spotted are the Purple Heron, Rufous-Night Heron, Asian Golden-Plover, and Philippine Duck. Proceed to Puerto Del Sol Resort in Bolinao Pangasinan, your accommodation for the night.
