Birding in Beijing Continued

A small and playful Grey-capped Pigmy Woodpecker

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 !

    Hallo Hans,

    Je bent lekker bezig daar in Beijing. Leuk om te lezen dat je ook echt op ontdekkingstocht ben qua nieuwe vogels, die je nog nooit eerder voor je lens heb gehad. Zo te zien zitten er prachtige en kleurrijke vogelsoorten. En dat post je allemaal nu al terwijl je in Beijing zit…Gaaf hoor. Veel plezier nog daar en succes met je zoektocht naar de bijzondere vogels!



    ps. Ik heb trouwens toch de eerste prijs gewonnen met die Ooievaars-wedstrijd….hahaha
