Even amongst the high rise of Hong Kong you can still find wildlife to photograph.
According to the records, there are about 450 bird species recorded in Hong Kong, representing approximately one third of the bird species recorded throughout China and one twentieth of the total number of bird species in the world. Among them are some 90 species of resident birds and more than 300 species of migratory birds. Hong Kong has such a wide variety of birds mainly due to its location at an estuary and hilly terrain, which provides diversified habitats for all sorts of birds. Besides, Hong Kong is located between the northern and south eastern parts of Asia, offering a stopover site or wintering ground for migratory birds on the East Asia migration route.
