Eurasian Kestrel (7) (Falco tinnunculus) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
Taiwan This Eurasian kestrel was landing on the high-raised building where I stayed and looking for a prey near the sunset time. A poor bat was flying around there and got caught by this raptor and perching near a window (to consume) where I took this photo. The color might be more brown than this bird's true color. This is about the time for this kestrel return to the Northland.

Styan's Bulbul (1) (Pycnonotus taivanus)
Vulnerable
User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
Taiwan Styan's bulbul is one of the endemic species of Taiwan, only abundance in the southern tip and eastern valley area where I made a recent trip to. The feather, habit and behavior were very similar to more common white-vented bulbul except of lacking whiter spot on the hind section of the head. This bird had a black head and nap area and white feather on the face. At the base of mouth, there is a small spot of red/orange spot. Because of interbreeding problem with more common Chinese bulbul, this species already extinct in some eastern part of Taiwan and considered as a vulnerable species status now.

Eurasian Blackbird (9) (Turdus merula) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
China This same Eurasian Blackbird also found in China and many part of Asia. I found this bird on the grass in the Hongchou's wetland conservation area. It must be another subspecies. Unlike the European one with bright color, this one look dull. Without hearing it sound (it is dead winter on March in Asia this year!), I can not say about its voice. The same species, perhaps 10K kms apart, illustrate this well adapted species.

Eurasian Blackbird (9) (Turdus merula) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
Croatia I took a trip on Balkan countries and had recorded several species. This is the most impressive for its sounds, loud but pleasant. It is a rather big compared with other thrushes. It is bright black with gold eye-ring and beaks. It presence everywhere in Balkan area with its loud voice during the summer.

Crested Myna (1) (Acridotheres cristatellus) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
Taiwan Due to other introduced/invasion mynas, this native endemic subspecies is threatened with reduced numbers. The ivory beaks is the marker for this species which is also distributed in China with different subspecies. I took this photo and paid little attention until I discovered the ivory beaks of this photo to prove I had this species at hand recently.

Red-billed Blue Magpie (1) (Urocissa erythrorhyncha) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
China I took this photo at the West Lake Park in Hongchou, China, the most popular tourist spot in China. It is a big surprise to me that red-billed magpie (Urocissa erythrorhyncha) because this is almost the same look as the Formosan BLue Magpie, except the belly is white instead of blue in the later species. In Taiwan, there were cases of interbreeding of these 2 species, thus a threat to the later species (Urocissa caerulea).

Azure-winged Magpie (3) (Cyanopica cyanus) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
China In the middle of metropolitan shanghai, I took this very late of the day and from a great distance I knew this is a different magpie and turned out to be the Azure-winged Magpie. This species distributed either in the southwest corner of Europe and China: what a strange distribution. This bird should have blue back and head and white underside. I took at front view, so nothing to show it pretty light blue feathers.

Black-naped Monarch (3) (Hypothymis azurea) User: jimmyhu  (See all photos - 70) (Comments - 3)
Taiwan This is one of endemic subspecies of Taiwan and considered as one of must species for bird photographer. I have seen this species many times but failed to have a nice shoot. Finally, I saw this particular male living near my apartment and I was pursuing this bird for a week. This morning was slightly rained but I was lucky to have a nice shot of this overall blue feather and beak but a black nap and a black line divided neck and chest. The lower underpart is grey/white color. It also makes loud and pretty sound.

The white band on the wing marks the myna from other birds. This species is also known for imitation of human voice, so it is kept for pet bird.
