Taken in Cebu, SRP area, behind the new seaside mall SM construction site. Jan. 21, 2014
There's a good birding spot there. If you happen to drop by Cebu, visit that area in SRP behind the DPWH building and behind the SM construction site. You can get there from Mambaling, there's a road to the right as soon as you cross the bridge by the UC maritime campus. That access road leads south back to the highway to the second bridge. Good time would be in the morning when it's low tide.
I also need help with the bird below. This was taken in SRP still, Jan. 17, 2014, just in front of the new Lantaw restaurant there. I only have two photos of the bird, since it loves to skulk. Edit: I'm beginning to think the photos below are of two different birds. But they were taken on the same spot. Second photo was taken 9 minutes after the first one.

I have confirmed the ID of the cisticola. I went back to that same spot and found four of them doing that characteristic up and down flight and making that knocking-two-pebbles-sound call. Edit: I also took pictures and confirmed that their tails had white tips. So I now have the Zitting Cisticola in my list. That leaves only the Warbler above for IDing. I would really appreciate it if someone could ID it for me. I am leaning towards Oriental, but I am not sure.
