New spot to explore birds

Funny how your view suddenly opens up when you're flying high up in a De-Havilland Twin Otter looking down on the world below you as opposed to driving around on tarmac like you normally do, and get your perception blocked up by trees lining the streets, houses and all kinds of manmade structures in front of you. Bird's-eye view is definitely more liberating and a sweet antidote to some of us claustrophobics. Makes you forget the cramped little space on the twin otter.

"X" marked the spot.

On our recent flight to Lawas, we spotted a small segment of degraded forest accessible from a road opposite of the water treatment plant. Roads look drivable from the air, plenty of tall trees in the vicinity. Wonder if there's any pretty birds in the area?
