Two Eagles On A Lookout Tree
I saw one of these birds come in for a landing but I didn't have my camera ready. I watched for a while to see if one would fly off, but it didn't. An hour later when I walked by again, they were both still sitting in the tree.
Species: Haliaeetus leucocephalus (Bald Eagle)

Eagle On Beach Rocks
I have never seen a Bald Eagle behave like a Great Blue Heron. These birds were grabbing fish near shore and returning to rocks to eat.

Cormorant Flying By
You can see all of the cormorants perched in the trees behind. Apparently their guano signifigantly changes the chemistry in the area.

Black Face Spoonbill
Everybody is excited about this bird because there is only a few thousand of them left in the world and only a few hundred come to Hong Kong. There was a flock of about 30 of them in a larger pond and a few individuals wading.
Species: Platalea minor (Black-faced Spoonbill)

This bird happened to wander close enough that I got a nice photo of it.
Species: Tringa stagnatilis (Marsh Sandpiper)

Flock Of Black Tailed Godwit
I was really hurting for light - 1/25th of a second really isn't enough to take a photo of a bird, ignoring that it's through an 800mm lens.
Species: Limosa limosa melanuroides (Asian black-tailed godwit)
