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.

Chiang Kai-shek birds

Just a few blocks away from the Botanical Gardens Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.
The Gardens are full of birds. And people of course.
A very common sight: Black Drongo, demonstrating acrobatic flights around the fishpond. I wonder if they do that only in mating season. Their name and appearance invoke moody impressions, like characters from some Japanese animation. Red-collared Doves on the other hand appear so peaceful.
The ever present Magpies seem less vocal and less prominent then in Japan.
