Bohol is a favourite bird-watcher’s destination in the Philippines. Famous of course is Olango Island, between Mactan Island and Bohol and part of the province of Cebu. But also Bohol has much to offer. The Rajah Sikatuna National Park in the inlands, near the town of Bilar, is a nature lovers paradise. With its 90 square kilometers Rajah Sikatuna National Park is the largest remaining natural forest in Bohol.
A number of trails have been set out and when you follow the trails through the park you can come across many species of birds. It will take some patience and you might need a bit of help. With some luck you can even come across some rare and endangered species, such as the Philippine Eagle Owl, Bubo philippensis.
