July 23, 2017 – WBCP Anniversary Party
Ninoy Aquino Park, Quezon City
The WBCP is now 14 years old and the spirit of camaraderie lives on. Once a year the club assembles to have its annual elections of officers, reports on the state of club activities, the significance of records for updating the Philippine Bird List and the announcement of future activities to the be undertaken. Reunions between birding buddies, discussion of future birding trips among friends or simply reminiscing past birding adventures shared between colleagues. Another fun day shared with nature loving people with a strong bond of volunteerism for the common cause for environmental conservation. 14 years and counting. (Credits to Cristina Cinco)
