It is not uncommon to find them in Hong Kong at places like the wet agricultural lands, nullahand watercourses. They often stand aside waters and prey on fishes and shrimps. I hope you know where Long Yuen and Mai Po are; they are in the New Territories. There, you can find quite someother species of the kind, e.g the cattleegret, little egret, great heron andnight heron.

The ones I posted here weretaken at theChineseUniversity of Hong Kongin the New Territories. I usually shot in two localities: this university and Ma On Shan;I live in Ma On Shan. So,in my other postings of the shorebirdsin Steve's, the majority of theshots weretaken in these two localities.

March, the time when you came to Hong Kong, is not a good time for birding and avian photography becauselots of thebirds from the north had already been through Hong Kong to the south for the destinations of their migratory routes, as most people said.

Again, thanks for viewing and giving comments.

Thanks for viewing and giving comments. The one in here is a young heron. This one is an elder one with plumage that can only be seen in mating seasons.
