While I will later certainly regret not keeping this sighting for my regular monthly post on Shanghai birds (it can be difficult to find interesting birds in June), it is just too tempting to show some photos of a Fairy Pitta migrating through Shanghai on June 1st, 2024. Just photos, no words.

Kai Pflug has been living in Shanghai for 20 years. He only became interested in birds in China – so he is much more familiar with birds in China than with those in Germany. While he will only ever be an average birder, he aims to be a good bird photographer and has created a website with bird photos as proof. He hopes not too many clients of his consulting company read this blog, as they will doubt his dedication to providing consulting services related to China`s chemical industry. Whenever he wants to shock other birders, he tells them his (indoor) cats can distinguish several warblers by taste.
