Chengdu Birding – [email protected] - Chengdu, Sichuan, the gateway to Tibet.

is it a plane, is it superman - no it's superhoopoe!!! Here's one I caught in mid flight.

Today it was a trip to another interesting Chengdu spot – the famous Panda research center. This place is located within parkland about 10km to the north of the city. Here you’ll find a lot of nice woodland, scrubby thicket and large areas of thick propagated Bamboo (a jungle of Panda fodder).

Chengdu Birding – [email protected] - Chengdu, Sichuan, the gateway to Tibet.

Here’s an interesting notice selling Bird watching to the masses - Chinese style. I think it starts quite well – the sentiment is there – but doesn’t it rather taper off at the end.

A DAY ON THE RIVER
Today’s Chengdu birding took place about 40km’s outside the city proper –in fact situated “next-door” to a very popular tourist destination – the San Xin Dui archaeological site and museum. But our watching was on the bordering river – the promisingly named Ya Ze He – Duck river.
