Aisatsu

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.

ルリビタキ, Red-flanked Bluetail


Friday was a public holiday and Jaap's running mates got together for a mountain run and a pick-nick on top. My legs won't keep up with them, but Shooji yama, near Dazaifu is always a good place to wander around. As colors are fading and the leaves are falling winter birds show up everywhere. The place was loaded with ruribitaki, little blue robin type birds.    嬉しい!! Also the parks around the botanical gardens, where it's easier to carry a camera and tripod.
