About the sharing

Black Kites are common birds of prey in Hong Kong, with almost 2000 wintering in this city every year. Why do Black Kites love to inhabit and breed in Hong Kong? This online sharing will allow you to better understand Black Kites by explaining their species and population in Hong Kong and the result of a series of surveys on their breeding behaviour. It will also introduce the work of the Kite Research Group of the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society.

麻鷹是香港常見的猛禽,每年有接近二千隻來港度冬。為什麼麻鷹愛在這裏棲息和繁衍下一代?這次的網上分享會將會介紹香港的麻鷹品種數量,分享麻鷹繁殖行為的調查成果,並講述香港觀鳥會麻鷹研究組的相關工作,讓參加者能深入認識麻鷹。
