Aisatsu

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.

Taiga Bean Goose, オオヒシクイ

The first Sunday of the month and it was raining - again. The birders' meeting was cancelled. So often that seems to happen. Some of us hung around to check the ducks and the 3 geese that had just arrived. Last year we saw the Tundra Bean Goose, this time there were 3 larger birds.

Despite their size they were not easy to detect in the field when at rest. Perfect camouflage on an grey rainy day. But then the sun came out.
