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.

Long-tailed Rosefinch, ベニマシコ

The snow of last month had gone, the temperatures were pleasantly around the 10 C, and I decided it was safe to drive to the mountains and look for finches. Preferably in pink. Sure, they were there.

I'd really been hoping for a bit more color, but this is all I got. Birds up in the trees are so hard to capture!

 This female had me confused, seeing it from behind.

While I waited around lady Bluetail kept me happy. Red-flanked Bluetail, ルリビタキ:
