Oriental Honey-buzzard visits KC Tsang yet again

on 13th February 2010

An Oriental Honey-buzzard (Pernis ptilorhyncus) first visited KC Tsang’s home in March 2008. The raptor then peeped into his kitchen window.

In July 2009 the raptor made its presence felt when it was mobbed by House Crows (Corvus splendens) and Black-naped Orioles (Oriolus chinensis) while perching on the roof of the building opposite KC’s home. And in November 2009 the raptor was again peeping into KC’s kitchen window.

Its latest visits to KC’s Simon Lane’s home were in February 2010. The image on the left was taken at 0815 hours on the 4th. The raptor’s latest return visit was on the 11th.

It would be interesting to find out whether it is the same bird that paid KS these visits through the years. We would be monitoring future visits…
