Global warming brings tropical birds to Hong Kong

From correspondents in Hong Kong, China

The sighting of two rarely seen tropical birds in Hong Kong could be due to climate change, bird experts here have said.

The birds – a great frigate and the white-tailed tropic-bird – were both spotted around Po Toi, Hong Kong’s southern most island, over the last month.

It was the first time the white-tailed tropic has ever been spotted in Hong Kong and only the fourth sighting of the frigate.
