1.Equipment- binoculars(preferably 8x42mm); a spotting scope with a magnification of 20x or more would help you identify distant birds.

2. Field Guide-the most comprehensive guide is the book A guide to the birds of the Philippines by Robert Kennedy and other known ornithologist; a more compact but less comprehensive guidebook is the Birds of the Philippines written byTim Fisher and Nigel Hicks, and Birds of Cebu and Bohol written by the local photographers in the area.

3. Attire-dark colors such as black, brown and green are the recommended clothing that should be worn while birdwatching. a hat can also be a very convenient part of your get-up.

4.journal-its is best if you have a journal of the birds you encounter(with date, time, place, weather, species, number, remarks and contact). to popular beliefs, birdwatching can be a strenuous activity with a lot of walking done. you must bring plenty of water. humidity can also play major concern, so it is best to have a handy towel to wipe away perspiration, a mosquito repellent when you plan to go to the forests is also very useful.
