Portraits of My Garden Birds (1)

 
This winter has been longer and colder than usual in Hong Kong. To help the birds through the tough winter, I have been putting bird food on my balcony regularly in the last few months. The birds showed their appreciation by letting me get very close and take some close-up photos. 


 
The most frequent visitors are the Chinese Bulbuls.







The Chinese Bulbuls are common residents in Hong Kong which are about 19cm long and very noisy. They mainly feed on fruit and insects. Because of the lack of food in the winter, these birds came to my balcony regularly to enjoy the fruit and cooked rice everyday.
