Some Exotic Birds at Edward Youde Aviary in Hong Kong

For this bird weekly challenge I am going to take you to Edward Youde Aviary in Hong Kong. We visited Hong Kong back in May of 2018. We wanted to go to Victoria Peak, and on our way over there, we saw this aviary park and decided to stop for a quick visit. Here are some of the birds that we can relate with the challenge for this week.

Here we have Maroon-breasted Crowned Pigeon from New Guinea
Bali Myna from Bali
This bird I am not sure but I think is the Greater Green Leafbird from Malay Peninsula and Greater Sundas

The Dive

“Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

We will never know if the pelican got the fish in this attempt, but I am sure it will try again and again until it catch something.

BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – DUCKS AND GEESE

Lesser Scaup in Lake Eola, Downtown Orlando, FL January 20, 2018
This baby ( I think is a mottled duck) was injured at some point, but it looks like it is doing ok now. Still breaks my heart. I took this picture the same day as the Lesser Scaup in Lake Eola.

This is a response to a BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – DUCKS AND GEESE

Enjoy my birds : )

Do you love the place you live at?

In a regular year I plan to travel at least six times, at least two of those six are major travel plans out of the US, the others are more local here in US. But in times like this that we can not travel we have to re focus and value the marvelous place where we live. I live in Florida and to be honest I am not a fan of the outdoors here, just the weather and the beach are what attracts me and is home… I been here for 23 years. But I want mountains, I don’t want alligator, neither tannic waters or wetlands or anything in that line. I am an outdoor person and I had learn to appreciate the outdoors here for other reasons (birds and other wildlife that are not alligators).

Anyways, I had learned … specially now, to value and appreciate the natural beauty of my hometown now more than ever.

What do you like from the place you live?
