bird watching fans usually go rural. and park-goers don’t pay much attention to birds. i love birds, and i often birding in city parks.
even so, i am a bit surprised seeing these in early may at victoria park.
紅尾伯勞 – 較棕背伯勞小一點。有時有條粗白色眉紋。
brown shrike –it is smaller than the long-tailed shrike. i am more familiar with the latter. brown shrike sometimes has a white line above the eyes.
牛背鷺 – 繁殖期：鮮橙色。沒有渡海習性，蟲食為主，跟其他鷺鳥吃魚蝦習慣不同。
cattle egret – in breeding orange colour. cattle egret is different from its heron and egret family members as it is land bound and eats insect and not fish.
chinese pond heron – normally it is brown in colour and with lines on the body. but during breeding season, it becomes more attractive, burgundy and stone-blue mix with white.
喜鵲 – 最愛那黑中紫藍的羽翼色彩。
common magpie – chinese love common magpie because its name in chinese symbolize happiness. what i love about this bird is the dark blue hidden in the black on its wings.
