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-headed Bunting, ズグロチャキンチョウ

Nomozaki peninsula, near Nagasaki city juts out at sea towards the south-west, making it an excellent landing spot for migrating birds arriving in spring. To get there we have to drive a few hours, but that's part of the fun. There were 2 unusual visitors hanging out in a neglected vegetable patch and a lot of old birding friends.

 2 males. The one on the left a bit younger than the other bright yellow colored bird. And/or still in winter plumage.
