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...

酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

一家大小市區麻雀篇 tree sparrow families

深春初夏,雀鳥進入繁殖期。我家住鬧市,有幸大廈背靠綠樹坡。清晨在窗外綠影鳥鳴伴醒,最是幸福。有朋友、也有新聞報導有市民有感鳥聲嘈耳煩擾要投訴,實在不能苟同。 這個季節,如到郊外,是觀賞夏候鳥的時節。但在城市內,鳥兒也在我們附近; 特別在一些老樓房屋簷下,我們的鳥朋友都在開枝散葉。 deep spring to early summer birds are busy breeding and raising families. not only we can witness such sweetness in the wild, such life stories are happening around us in the city as well. our very close buddies, eurasian tree sparrows love building nests in small spaces hidden here and there in...
