Birdwatching as defined is the practice of observing birds in their natural environment as a hobby. A big potential of Birdwatching in Sitio Limentuog due to the protection and conservation being done by the community on their remaining forest area of the Mt. Kampalili range. It was noted that people of the sitio protected the nest sites of the Philippine eagle.
