A Sunny Friday At The Parks and WildLife

01 July 2010

Please bear with the photos, I don't have any of my cameras with me when we went there. It was just one of those days when I thought of not bringing my camera bag. Lucky I used my old cellphone that Friday afternoon.

The Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife is one of the parks that is very accessible from our place. Right at the heart of Quezon City you will find this green park. Green? well, if you're going to look at it from the sky, there's this whole circle or green spot in the middle of the city. That's the Quezon City Circle and the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center. It's like an oasis. Who would think that we still have a  place for nature in spite of the growing population of infrastructures in the city. We have a clean and green mayor, to begin with.

One of my favorite spots at the wildlife center is the lake located at the middle of the park. The water is clean and it is surrounded by trees. My son finds this park an enchanting place. Playing around the park makes him hyperactive. He really enjoys the whole nature thing. A natural habitat where he can breath fresh air, hear the birds chirping and an over-all calm environment.

The parks and wildlife has a mini zoo that houses endangered species and abused animals. Another must-see  is the Philippine_Eagle or "Haring Ibon". Also known as the great Philippine eagle or monkey-eating eagle.

With a height of 1 meter and a wingspan of 2 meters wide, the Philippine Eagle is one of the largest eagles in the world. Globally considered as critically endangered since 1969. This last photo of the Philippine Eagle turned 29 years old in 2009. And it's really big and  fierce looking.

@ Joy thanks it feels good that just knowing that there's a park near our place :)

@ Chris Don't worry, I'll take you there soon. I'm slowly getting things here at home and some tasks outside in order.
