More than cloud and sky

According to a local article written by photographic journalist, Lee Tian QI (李天锜), about 30 numbers of birds of prey transited through Singapore as migrant in September.

They flew all the way from Northern Hemisphere to Southern Hemisphere, some stay for 1 or 2 days, while some stay up for a few months.

During the stay, the birds frequently visited Sungei Buloh, Seletar, Changi and Jurong Lake, where most of the wetland and mangrove are.  While others look for footprints, the avid interest of Lee prompts him to hunt for ‘birdprints’.

He had experienced witnessing a Japanese Sparrow Hawk chasing a group of birds.

I thanked him for the great discovery and generously sharing this information with us.  Ever since reading the article, it is not just sky and cloud appearing in my eyes whenever I looked up to the sky.

There are more things beyond that.  I believe this is what the writer is trying to tell us.  There is certainly something to look for on this little red dot.
