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.

November birds 1

It is November, we might get to see something special. So I cruised the fields and got a call...
Yes! Very special indeed.

Not the Lapwings, they come every year. But their colors are so pretty when the weather is good, could not resist a few shots. Northern Lapwing, タゲリ

Not the Starlings, although they are not seen every day.
Common Starling, ホシムクドリ

Neither the Pipits, but this ball of fluf wanted to be in here.
Water Pipit, タヒバリ

And certainly not the Kestrel, but previous postings didn't include an adult male. So:
male Eurasian Kestrel, チョウゲンボウ

But... Here is a Long-eared Owl, トラフズク

Perched in a tree as if it belonged there. The next day it was gone.
