Black Eared Kite
There were lots of large predators flying around the shores in Sai Kung. I believe I saw an Osprey at a long distance. The Black-eared Kites were by far the most common - later in the day I saw at least 10 from our position on the boat.

Two Vultures Circling
Two Vultures Circling. The internet has changed things. Back in the day, after a day of taking photos, I would hit the books and look up each bird I saw using the local guide books. Now I can use google images to find unique features and then work backwards to be sure I have the correct species.
Species: Sarcogyps calvus (Red-headed Vulture, Asian King Vulture)

Red-Wattled Lapwing Flying By
We really pissed this bird off by being here - it flew circles around us for the whole time.

Snow Geese Flying Overhead
I like the high contrast - I really wonder how that evolved. It's nice the sky worked out so blue.
