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.

Siberian Blue Robin, コルリ

As usual it involved a bit of waiting around to see this pretty robin, but when he came out of the thickets he gave us a show!

While waiting we watch other migrators that come and go, like the Narcissus Flycatcher, キビタキ.
 Bright and colorful, it's always a pleasant encounter. This young male was very active, quarreling with other birds around him and watching us from branches at eye level.

He particularly liked to chase the Blue-and-white Flycatcher, オオルリin the cherry trees. Below the blue colored male, followed by the grey-ish female. 

Then a Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker, コゲラ decided to land in front of me. A young bird I think, took his time preening.
