城市黑鳶 black kite’s city life

常到海防博物館,主要是看鳥看花草看海景。 黑鳶愛在這漁港上空滑翔。 i adore black kite. it is spiritual, their soaring and gliding over our city sky. 不難發現牠們停頓時,喜歡待在高樓的樓頂。 the museum of coastal defense adds an alternative to my kite appreciation. in addition to the usual aviation, because of the height of the site, i sometimes spot them resting around, on trees and on building rooftop....

麻鷹並不討人愛,但香港人對牠們有特別的親切感。因為牠們經常盤旋市區上空,展示高難度飛行,穿插玻璃大樓間。 麻鷹的正名是黑鳶。很有意境 - 黑色的風箏。 black kites are not a pleasing creature, but hongkongers are fond of them; we often see them hovering over our city, exhibiting their skillful flight, gliding between skyscrapers. i would say, black kite is the guardian of this city.   辨識蠻容易,尾巴有點像魚尾,寬大的翼尖有六個羽指。 曾經,辦公室在尖沙嘴海港城的商務大樓,不知多少次,我們在會議室工作的時候,麻鷹大哥大姐不忙飛過,最初有點驚嚇,到後來有一陣子不見便會牽念。 而每次走到山頂一處山谷,或者在香港仔郊野公園的上壩,一定會逗留多刻,看著牠們悠然盤飛和飆嘯。 感覺黑鳶是這城的守護鳥。 it is a spectacle to see them...

布狗尾 longspike uraria

上星期天在海防博物館路坡,發現兩叢粉紫甜筒般的花蕾,馬上走前端視。不料走前幾步,更驚喜,遇開花的版本,以及花謝果生。 i spotted these ice cream cone-like budding plants at the museum of coastal defense last sunday. a few more steps forward, found their family members blosooming and fruiting. how convenient and exciting , as i said many times before, i love fluffy things. 她名叫布狗尾。在台灣多叫兔尾草或貓尾草。頂生總狀花序,蝶形花小朵小朵從花序底部開起,幼時粉紅,成長為黛紫,結果閃耀綠澤再老成黑子。 有關這植物,資料多來自中藥網站,說全株可用,可止血藥、清熱,又用于養生食療。 there is minimal information in english about this plant....
