黃額絲雀 yellow-fronted canary (serinus mozambicus)

黃額絲雀來自非洲,但香港人對牠並不感陌生,尤其老一輩的雀友,因為這鳥又名石燕,是歌聲美妙很受歡迎的養鳥。

鳥書對其於香港的居留狀態是這樣寫的:「常見逸鳥或放生鳥,遠離已知分佈範圍。」

這是我第一次在野外看到石燕,而且不只一隻;特誌。

yellow-fronted canary is known in aviculture as the green singing finch. yes you may see them in quantity in the birds market. but the species actually comes from africa.

yet they can be called a common species in hong kong as some escape from captured and others actually are bought then “released” for religious reason.

this is my first time seeing yellow-fronted canary in the wild, and more than one; thus this record.
