Common Birds of Hong Kong

Artwork design is perfect and stylish. Navigation is neat and smooth. As an information seeker, I hope to be able to get as much information as possible from this single app. However, it would become insensible to pack it up with boring or difficult-to-read information. The app has struck a good balance between being informative and being concise. It deserves my recommendation.
