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.

Oike, Oita pref.

One morning in December we drove to this place near Mt Kuju where we hoped to see Treecreepers and Woodpeckers. Didn't get lucky with the first, but managed to see some peckers high up in the trees. And enjoyed the pretty fungi this time of year!

Japanese Green Woodpecker, アオゲラ

White-backed Woodpecker, オオアカゲラ

Eurasian Nuthatch, ゴジュウカラ

 A friendly Redstart waited for us at the entrance of the park Daurian Redstart, ジョウビタキ male

  1. A day with woodpeckers and nuthatches with a few fungi thrown in is a good day by my standards.
