Crested Goshawk and Asian Glossy Starling, Kaohsiung, January 2nd

A Crested Goshawk was an unusual sight, soaring high over the Love River near the Jhonghua Road bridge. Asian Glossy Starling, Black-crowned Night Heron and Common Magpie were among the other urban species that found their way onto the year list this week. Brown Shrikes are very numerous as usual this winter, present in every park and patch of waste ground.
