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.

Winter Birds 1

In between festivals and snow I managed to find some common birds around town.
Not very special; this year seems so quiet. However, I personally love the common birds just as much.

 The Meadow Buntings, ホオジロ can always be found. They love the reed and when the sun comes out they look pretty in the soft winter light.

Right around the corner a Water Rail, クイナ pops out

The Green Sandpiper, クサシギ was there too

Just like the Common Reed Buntings, オオジュリン

 Magpies, カササギ causing a bit of commotion - as usual

Teasing the Black Kite, トビ

Mr and Mrs Bull-headed Shrike, モズ

 Last but not least this Common Kingfisher, カワセミ

A common sight, but not here. Look at that location, there is a very busy road right there. See the car?
