Birding in Beijing can also be terribly frustrating: heavy smog taking away the daylight, strong winds that blow away the birds and cause dust and sand storm. And so many places with so many people… That all said: still there’s more to show after the previous blog. Another newcomer for me was the Grey-capped Pigmy Woodpecker (Grijskapspecht) – a very little, lovely woodpecker. The Azure-winged Magpies are a pain by the way since they roam around in large flocks, but fly of at the slightest human movement.. Anyway, see for yourself & greetings from Beijing !
