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 birds in Fukuoka 5

Another Thrush, a winter visitor who has been here for 4 months and has to leave soon. He or she (?) has started to feel quite at home now. I saw him lurking in the dark way below the wooded slope on another day and just when I was wondering what was happening down there he jumped right in front of me, startling us both.
Whites's Thrush, トラツグミ

 He quickly flew back down, but an hour later he was coming up hill again. 

Japanese Great Tit,  シジュウカラ

These tits won't be going anywhere now. The are already pairing and building their nests. I love their marking and like to watch them bathing.



  1. Some lovely pictures. The thrush is really stunning.

    1. Thank you Russell, I was really lucky with that bird.
