Xingping Birding

Xingping Guangxi Birding

I caught the bus from Guilin to Yangshuo and then caught another bus to Xingping. I found my hostel real easily and in the afternoon went for a walk along the river. In the morning I got up just before 7am and headed out. It was overcast and miserable as per usual, so the light was horrendous. The highlight was seeing some Plumbeous Water Redstarts along the banks of the river. I got photos of both the male and female. The male has a red butt and the female has a white one.
