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.

Grey Nightjar ヨタカ の ショートステー

One lucky day in the park.
After debating where to go for the day, the islands, the mountains, Imazu, we opted for Minami koen and the botanical gardens. And we got lucky. On top of this Nightjar we saw a Japanese Thrush and 2 or 3 Japanese Paradise Flycatchers. These last two moved too fast, too hard to capture, but the Nightjar sat very still.

Grey Nightjar  ヨタカ

Nearby, but hard to detect

Sleeping most of the time

鼻の穴 hana no ana, nostril 

Keeping an eye on the bug 

 What Insect is this?

And crows overhead 

Sound asleep again, till we left at the end of the day.
The next day he was gone.

今日の勉強   眠っています= sleeping
