Pretty BAD

I landed back in HK today after a tiring but exhilarating trip to Dubai. Not much sleep and on day one I kicked off at 7am with a breakfast meeting and finished dinner with clients at 11pm.  All that means of course that I was not out firing the bazooka at the birds. I went back instead to this time three years ago and revive a pretty garden visitor, the Hwamei. If you hear an English Common Blackbird singing in Hong Kong, its probably the Hwamei. Our Chinese Blackbird sounds very different. I hope you like these 3 images.

  1. The Hwamei certainly is an interesting looking bird! It’s dramatic eye plumage reminds me of my first disastrous attempt to apply liquid eye liner. I would have a quiet chuckle every time I saw this bird. Thank you for taking the time to post BAD.

  2. Good heavens! what a colour, this is surely a bronze? Does it really sound the same as a blackbird? Once upon a time, when life was not so good for me, there used to be a blackbird sat singing in a tree at the end of our street in London. Hearing that little birds song each day when I returned from work used to make my day.

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
