Over the weekend, I just learned from a Sunday newspaper, of a unique event called the Ibon-Ebon Festival.

It is a colorful event celebrated in Candaba, Pampanga showcasing this municipality as a haven of choice for thousands of migratory birds including rare bird species and its very own duck-egg industry.

This year's celebration of the Ibon-Ebon festival will be on February 4 & 5, 2011. Bird watchers & nature-lovers in general will surely enjoy the bird watching tours, swamp & river cruise, parade and "bird-kite" flying among other planned activities.

PLDT & Smart are part of the information drive about the festival. And I share their call to rediscover the northern part of the country beginning with this Philippine festival.

The Ibon Ebon festival is one of the unique celebrations that we can promote and further develop. It even has an ecological aspect in it in these times of environmental awareness and care.

Here's a video of the Ibon Ebon Festival last year.
