GLAN, Sarangani (October 3, 2019) – Why do birds suddenly appear at Raptor Hill? This site in Barangay Rio del Pilar gives the ideal view to monitor the exit point in the Philippines for the migratory raptors passing the country to roost in nearby Mt. Gulo and Mt. Taltak en route to Indonesia during the months of September to October. Peak hours this season are 8-9am and 12nn-1pm. The presence of migratory birds in Glan was first discovered in 2014. Some residents around what is now called as Raptor Hill have noticed a “thick flock of birds covering the sun, flying together.” (Martin Fernando E. Bernad/SARANGANI COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE)
