|Had I known this would be a lifer then, I would have taken better shots.|
Not far from it was the Masked Laughingthrush.
Both birds were so used to people that we had to move back to get the whole bird in the frame!
Behind one of the structures, a pair of Alexandrine Parakeets were busy building a nest.
The highlight of the day was the gorgeous Red-billed Blue Magpie.
My wife and I did a short walk towards the pier. What got our attention was the presence of a raptor soaring by the tall buildings. We were wondering what kind of prey these birds hunt in the middle of a busy city. Black Kites, we learned later, feed on garbage dumps. Despite such bad reputation, we still think it is a magnificent bird of prey.
Eventually, jet lag crept in. We had a quick lunch, returned to our hotel, and retired for the rest of the day.
