Annual Hong Kong Flower Show

When spring comes each year, Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department organizes a big flower show in a small park in the middle of the city. 

I am always impressed by the spectacular displays using thousands of pots of flowers, and this year is no exception.

Beautiful Sunset

The wet and misty weather hasn’t been ideal for birdwatching lately. But it hasn’t stopped the birds enjoying themselves on the mudflats.

Watching them feeding in the sunset makes me feel very lucky to have the opportunity to relish the beautiful scenery.

New Garden Visitor-----Masked Laughingthrush

   The cool winter days seem to stay forever and it is not often that we have as many Cold Weather Warnings at this time of the year in Hong Kong. While we humans are fed up with the cold and wet days, the birds are not very happy either. Recently, more and more birds have been coming to the garden for food and the Masked Laughingthrush (Black-faced Laughingthrush) is one of them.


Usually the Masked Laughingthrushs are shy and feed mainly on the ground on insects and fruits. Lately, they are often seen on top of papaya trees in the garden. In the last few days, they have even come to my balcony for food, giving me the chance to take closeup photos.

Actually each bird has its own unique personality as you can see from these portraits.

Hunting-----Chinese Pond Heron

When the herons/egrets are hunting,  they can be too focused to take notice of their surroundings.  Occasionally they come very close to the Birdwatching Hides, providing rare opportunities for closeup photos.
