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.

Winter birds 1, オオハクチョウ, Whooper Swan

I went in to check on out special guests a few time, taking the chance to watch them while they are around. These photos were taken in December 2014:

We're coming ashore!

Time for a bit of preening

The tide is coming in, our little island is getting smaller...

Showing off a wingspan  (maybe 2.4 m!)

 The situation being evaluated

What do you little guys think?

Shake out those magnificent feathers

Should move on, but the sun feels so good...
