BARAS BIRD SANCTUARY: A Surreal Sight To Behold

While walking around Baras Bird Sanctuary, Mr. Rey Malana, the owner, mentioned that the best way to observe these flocks of birds actively flying from tree to tree is from the top of the Observatory Deck. I was thrilled I wanted him to bring us there right away. But when we reached area, it wasn’t the ordinary observation deck I painted on my head. It was a huge Sampaloc Tree towering at 50 feet high with a makeshift steel ladder nailed on the trunk. There was no deck up there. Only branches big enough to carry my weight. While everyone chose to stay on the ground, there I was succumbing to this “sense of adventure” that has brought me to places I never imagined to see. I braved enough and made it to the top. And up there I marveled at one of most beautiful sight I’ve seen in years. Oh God, I wish I lived here.
