亞歷山大鸚鵡在九龍。alexandrine parakeet in the centre of the city in kowloon
yesterday i was a busy area in kowloon. suddenly somewhere high up in the sky there were some loud bird talks. i tried to get ready with my camera and started locating them. there were more than two of them and i finally managed to focus on an easy and adorable target, one going inside and out of a tree hole. this could be a young or female alexandrine parakeet. parrots love group action. of course there are companies. note that this species is near threatened.
