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.

New Zealand 8

A little bit of everything:

First the Song Thrush, my favorite.

Shining Cuckoos are difficult to distinguish with their green coloring

Another Shining Cuckoo in the bamboo

Finches of all kinds, here the Yellow Hammer

and a distant Goldfinch

Raptors of course, probably Australasian Harriers

Skylarks singing high up in the sky

 or scaling a steep mudwall, looking for insects.

And  –  another Pohutukawa, this majestious tree just one of many.
