Tomohon Birding Day Two

This morning I got up early and wandered the back streets of Kakaskasen, just north of Tomohon. It was quite productive. After a big christmas dinner with some family of my homestay I went up in the hills out the back, near the Cecak Resort. And then found some fish ponds behind town.
