Black Shoulder Kite

One of the unique characteristic of Black Shoulder Kite is their ability to hover. Watch them hover really made my day.
I like this photo very much!

Little Heron Celebrate Mothers Day

Saw this pair of little heron having a conversation on Mothers Day. The adult Little Heron was perching on the fender on top of a monsoon canal.
The juvenile Little heron with dull brown plumage after several failed hunting looking at his mother for help.The chick " Mom, I couldn't get any fish and are very hungry, can you give me some thing to eat?"

"I am really hungry!"
The mother heron " My son, don't you know today is Mothers Day? You should instead get some fish for me!"The chick quietly move away and try to catch some fish...

That's my boy!!

Mothers Day Special

Next week is Mothers Day! As promised, I prepared a video compilation as a tribute to all mothers.

Photos selected are all from nestling, breeding, feeding & fledging photos. These chicks stand no chance without the caring mothers!

Most photos are taken in Singapore, if you are looking for new birding destination, Singapore is not a bad idea!!
