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.

雲仙 Mt Unzen 1

On October 9th we took the sleeping bags for an overnighter at Mt Unzen in Nagasaki pref.
The pond at Azamidani is a favorite birding spot and this was my 3rd visit.

In the afternoon of our arrival we got quite lucky, with a juvenile male Copper Pheasant walking in leasurely, followed by 2 females, one adult and one juv.

ヤマドリ,  Copper Pheasant

Here comes the lady...


Returning for the 3rd time in 50 min. What a treat!
