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.

対馬 Tsushima 2

In Sago, while waiting for the Black-capped Kingfisher Junko Minami spotted a Dollarbird, high up in a tree..

    ブッポウソウ, Dollarbird

A pretty female Narcissus Flycatcher (not as colorful as the male, but still nice) dropped by to check me out.

キビタキ, Narcissus Flycatcher

The next morning we received notice of yet another Black-capped Kingfisher in the north, so we drove up again, stopping occasionally at fields and forests, but didn't find anything special. Just a common (river) Kingfisher and some Grey-tailed Tattlers in a river somewhere in the wobwobs (forgot the name)

カワセミ, Common Kingfisher

キアシシギ, Grey-tailed Tattler

Back in the south we found the Yellow Wagtails still present and the Chinese Pond Heron doing us a huge favor by sitting quietly just by the side of the road.
