Would that be a Philippine Cobra ? the markings appear to be a cobra family type .....

I don't think so. This one is grey and very thin. The orange markings are are irregular, just like blobs of color and are only on the front quarter of the snake, the bottom of the snake is white.

I believe that is a paradise tree snake.

It is a rear-fanged venomous snake. They are also called flying snakes because they launch themselves from tree to tree.

That looks like it.

It's only mildly venomous ... whatever that means.

We are surrounded by forested areas, so these are pretty common.  When we see them, they are typically in search for birds nests, probably for eggs or chicks. 

Once in a while we’ve heard them plop down from a flight that was misguided. 

We clear out the nests of maya birds when they get constructed in shrubbery near to our house in an effort to reduce the number of snakes that might search for a meal.

Have caught one climbing a palm tree.

Yup we have them in our garden also.
