Black Eared Kite Turning
I really wasn't expecting to take photos of this bird - that is why the exposure is so off. I was walking in the area (actually taking photos of butterflies) and the bird flew - much further away than a bird in Vancouver does. I shot with what was set. Shooting a dark bird against an overcast sky is always a poor idea.
Species: Milvus migrans lineatus (black-eared kite)

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.

Flock Of Black Tailed Godwit
I was really hurting for light - 1/25th of a second really isn't enough to take a photo of a bird, ignoring that it's through an 800mm lens.
Species: Limosa limosa melanuroides (Asian black-tailed godwit)

Cormorant Flying By
You can see all of the cormorants perched in the trees behind. Apparently their guano signifigantly changes the chemistry in the area.
Species: Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant)

Black Face Spoonbill
Everybody is excited about this bird because there is only a few thousand of them left in the world and only a few hundred come to Hong Kong. There was a flock of about 30 of them in a larger pond and a few individuals wading.
Species: Platalea minor (Black-faced Spoonbill)

King Fisher Fishing
This is 5 photos composited in photoshop. This tiny bird was repeatedly fishing (dumb fish) so I shot on each flight. Too bad I don't own a 1500mm lens.
Species: Alcedo atthis (European Kingfisher, Common Kingfisher)
