Red and green!

Another one of the birds I photographed on January 25, this bird was only there for a few seconds. One second he was there. The next, he was gone. I've seen him before though so I'll probably see him again. Hopefully, there will be opportunities to get better pictures of him.

Does anybody know his name?

Now that I have "The Photographic Guide to the Birds of Hong Kong", it is no longer necessary for readers to help me name the birds I show. However, thank you to everyone who helped me with the names of the birds prior to my book purchase. I truly appreciate the effort.

Radio interview on RTHK2

Filed in Press

I apologise. I completely forgot to let you people know ahead of time about a radio interview I'm doing tomorrow although I didn't actually know the exact time myself until today.

The interview will be with RTHK2 between 5.30pm and 6.30pm. The show's name is 萬王之王. This is the link to their online streaming program. Be sure to check back before the show just to make sure that I haven't made a mistake and changed the link ;-)

I've actually had a very busy month as far as interviews go. There was one interview with TVB which hasn't aired yet, and another interview with TVB next week. There have also been several interviews with newspapers and magazines. I'll list them for you later.

Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago, one of our 'kids' ran past my desk and looped himself through the power cable for my scanner. The jolt pulled the plug in my scanner and snapped the power connector right off the mother board. The scanner will have to be repaired and until then, I cannot scan any interviews for you, but I'll get onto it as soon as possible (skirting the fact that I haven't scanned any of last year's interviews yet).

Take care.
