While the cold winter leads to freezing temperatures and heavy snow in many places around the world, it brings plenty of colourful birds to Hong Kong.
The signature bird at this time of the year is the Fork-tailed Sunbird. They are tiny little birds about 9cm long that are extremely active. The male is very colourful,
while the female is mainly greenish coloured.
These birds largely feed on nectar and are often seen looking for food among flowers.
Watching them feed on flower trees in the winter makes the cold weather much more bearable.
