Random video clips on birds…

on 29th January 2012

Lena Chow‘s three video clips and her comments…

1. Enjoying the breeze
“Oriental Honey-buzzard (Pernis ptilorhyncus) outside my bedroom window resting and enjoying the breeze, unperturbed by barking dogs nearby, and a crow flying close.”

2. An Alarmed Corella
“Tanimbar Corella (Cacatua goffini) screeching at an intruder occupying it’s usual hangout, 10m above ground level! I was drawn to the site by incessant screeching which continued after I left.”

3. A Bittern’s Focus
“Yellow Bittern (Ixobrychus sinensis) focussing like a laser beam on it’s quarry, despite a waterhen preening busily for a few minutes next to it.”

  1. The Corella’s worry was unnecessary. The lizard, which appeared to be a Clouded Monitor, is a timid creature. I have shared an account of it being intimidated by some Javan Myna before.
