夜鷺 night heron

經常在香港公園和九龍公園水池或旁邊的樹木上看到他們的蹤影。因為體形大,藍灰顏色調和悅目,配搭白羽絨,加上少動靜,雖然是常見鳥類,每次遇到依然忍不住停住細看。i spot them fairly often in hong kong park and kowloon park. even though they are common in hong kong, they cheer me every time, with their colour tones – the blue-grey blend well with the fluffy white; and they always hold themselves static on treetop or by waterside, quite comic.
