鬧市快影:樟樹洞和絲光椋鳥 quick snap downtown: camphor tree hole with a red-billed starling

尖沙咀鬧市幽靜一角,美麗的幾分鐘。

看到一隻絲光椋鳥站在此樟樹的樹洞,於是靜靜走近一點。牠沒有受驚動。我就跟牠一同駐足好幾分鐘。

牠主要抬頭望向上方;我則不停留意牠身體不同部分: 身上白灰卻幽幽有點藍光的羽毛,炯炯美目,奪目的紅唇(其實是喙)。

i had a beautiful few minute-moment with this red-billed starling around a quiet corner in the middle of tsim sha tsui.

spotted it standing at the tree hole. so i slowly and quietly walked closer. luckily i didn’t scare it.

there i watch it all over for a few minutes, while it basically looking around without paying attention to me. love the greyish white with a blue sim of its plumage, its big round eyes, and the red lips (well, beak).
