市區幼鳥紀錄 records of city chicks

昨日在中環,於是特意進遮打公園兜一個圈,隨意探訪裡面的花草樹木。突然發現一隻麻雀在前方動作特別慢。細心留意,原來是隻幼雀,所以遇到人反應沒有很快。

看,小麻雀的嘴還有一彎黃,喙尚有一抹粉紅沒有完全硬化。

i happened to be at central yesterday, since i was not in a rush, i routed charter garden to pay a visit to the trees and greenery there.

suddenly i sensed a sparrow moving unusually slow in front of me. taking a closer look, no wonder, it is a sparrow chick. it is yet to respond as fast as adult bird.

look. there is still a trace of yellow at the corner of its beak and the beak itself is pinkish showing that it is not very hard. lovely.

這讓我不禁拿出上星期拍下的照片分享,是一窩的燕子幼鳥。本來以為夏日正濃,燕子可能已經離巢了,竟知發現這一家依然留守。牠們的家在一棟舊樓的屋簷內。

 

this prompts me to share another group of minors. it is a nest full of barn swallow chicks. summer has arrived long, i didn’t expect many swallows around. but this photo was taken just last week. these fellows were nesting inside a corner of a walk up building in my neighbourhood.
