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.

Black-tailed Godwit, オグロシギ

A near-threatend migrating bird that covers great distances. It might fly from Japan to Australia in just under a week. I felt lucky to see these magnificant 2 up close, so took too many photos - again.


With stilts in the back 

First there was just 1 bird, a day later the 2nd one flew in. They seem close.
