草間•小鳥 small birds in grasses

乘候鳥季節,密集到訪濕地公園。看冬候鳥是焦點,但也看其他留鳥。

this winter-spring i frequent the wetland park. the main purpose is the migratory birds, but there are lot more to see – plants, insects and resident birds.

上星期六,春意濃,濕地間的蘆葦穗叢豐盈,風吹草動見鳥兒。

these are two of the birds i saw last saturday.

黃腹鷦鶯,我以為是最會偽裝的小鳥,因為牠是「喵喵」叫的,鳥卻貓叫。看牠多驕傲地站在蘆葦頂端。

yellow-bellied prinia. this tiny bird owns one if not more skill, or should i say art. it meows. yes, it chirps like kitties. look how proud it stands on top of the reeds head.

到泥灘鳥屋一心看候鳥,冷不防近處的穗叢熱鬧得很。一群斑紋鳥在啄食鮮嫩的穗果。

at the mudflat, i was drawn by these fellas even though my intension was to catch some bigger migratory birds. there was a patch of plants looking like rice paddy. It turned the party land of these scaly-brested munia.
