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.

Migrating waders 7, Ruff

September 6: The stints and stilts got company: 2 Ruffs

Ruff,  エリマキシギ

The whole lot took off when a Peregrine Falcon flew over and tried to get his pick. He didn't get what he wanted, but a bunch of feathers on the road suggest he or she was successful on another attempt.

Peregrine Falcon,  ハヤブサ

They took refuge in another field where the rice offers protection, but the water is a bit deep for the Ruff's short bills...
