This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Winter birds had arrived, The Daurian Redstarts, Red-flanked Bluetails, Black-faced Buntings and the common Thrushes.
An Asian Brown Flycatcher was still around, on November 22nd. Isn't it time to move on?

It's a cute bird with its up-turned bill, feeding in shallow water, sweeping that bill from left to right, much like a spoonbill. Despite the distance it was fun to watch. We had to wait for the tide to recede before we could see its legs. Not brightly colored like a stilt, but an elegant bird in its own way.
