Bislig City, Surigao del Sur (06 February 2018). The Department of Environment and Natural Resources waterbird census team from PENRO Surigao del Sur, CENRO Bislig, city government of Bislig, and barangay Pamanlinan recently initiated the annual Asian Waterbird Census (AWC) at Pamanlinan River, Sitio San Juan, Pamanlinan, this city.

Using binoculars and spotting scope during the on-site census and identification on January 12, 2018, the team was able to identify/count twenty-seven (27) kinds of waterbirds and other wetland-dependent bird species with a total of seven-thousand six-hundred and fifty-nine (7,659) identified/counted birds. Intermediate Egret was most the dominant waterbird species with six-thousand four hundred eighty (6,480), while the most lesser numbers were Terek Sandpiper, Oriole and Barred Rail. Other identified birds were Philippine Duck, Whistling Duck, Brahminy Kite, White-Collared Kingfisher, Barn Swallow, Terek Sandpiper, Yellow Bittern, Common Sandpiper, Oriole, Lesser Sand Plover, Greater Sand Plover, Purple Heron, Ruddy Turnstone, Barred Rail, Javan Pond Heron, Redshank, Fruit Dove, Marsh Sandpiper, Osprey, Swiflets, Starling, Raven, Phil. Bulbul, Australian Stilt, Sand Bird, Owl, Great Egret and Little Egret.

Asian Waterbird Census (AWC) runs parallel to other international census of waterbirds in Africa, Europe and Neotropics under the umbrella of the International Waterbird Census (IWC). AWC is an annual event and takes place once a year, during the second and third weeks of January. Specifically, for AWC 2018 counts are from Mon day 8th to Friday 19th January, covering two weeks and two weekends. The member countries under the AWC- Southeast Asia are; (1) Brunei Darussalam, (2) Cambodia, (3) Indonesia, (4) Lao PDR, (5) Malaysia, (6) Myanmar, (7) Singapore, (8) Thailand, (9) Timor Leste, (10) Vietnam, and (11) Philippines.

The International Waterbird Census (IWC) commenced in January 1967, a site-based counting program for monitoring waterbird numbers as an indicator for status of wetland sites and population of waterbird species, recognized as an indispensable source of information for policies to protect and manage wetlands and the waterbirds.

Asian Waterbird Count/ Census (AWC) was initiated in 1987 which covers South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and Australasia. Its objectives are; (1) provide the basis for estimates of waterbird population, (2) monitor changes in waterbird numbers and distribution by regular, standardized counts of representative wetlands, (3) improve knowledge of little-known waterbird species and wetland sites, (4) identify and monitor sites that are important for waterbirds in general and, more specifically, identifying and monitoring sites that qualify as Wetlands of International Importance (WII) under the Ramsar Convention and the Flyway Site Network under EAAFP, (5) provide information on the conservation status of waterbird species, for use by international agreements, (6) increase awareness of the importance of waterbirds and their wetland habitats at local, national and international level, and (7) Build and strengthen national networks of enthusiastic volunteers and facilitate their training.
