噪鵑 common koel

由小便認識這鳥 …… 的叫聲。每年春夏之際,便聽到牠們「芋烏芋烏」叫。

birding book from hong kong called this species common koel, but on wiki it is named asian koel, as opposed to pacific koel and others.

i knew this bird since childhood, because of their “koo-Ooo” every spring-cross-summer, but never had a glimpse of the honour.

終於,近距離看到牠,並將這男生拍入鏡頭。

昨日在尖沙嘴中間道公園的大葉榕(古冊名目)上/內。

i was thrilled therefore yesterday founding this gentleman in close distance and stayed long inside a big-leaved fig (registered old and valuable tree) at the middle road park at tsim sha shui.
