Pigeon Guillemot In Flight
I really like the penguin dress code. There were a number flying around Race Rocks, some standing on shore.

Peregrine Falcon
Shooting against a bright background doesn't help. This bird never really got close and of course it was moving fast.
Species: Falco peregrinus (Peregrine Falcon)

Turkey Vulture Circling
The white and black contrast on the underside of the wings is quite striking.

This is a three image composite (in photoshop). I don't own a long lens so this is the best I can do.

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.
