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.

Eurasian Hoopoe, ヤツガシラ

Finally a chance to watch this bird for a while. Guess what? My camera broke down halfway.
The D750 was replaced with the old D7100... Luckily I got some good shots first.

The bird seemed quite at ease. Looking for insects, he punched holes with his bill deep in the ground

So deep...

... and came up with something like a larvae

or a worm 

spiders and beetles were on the menu, too

He (or she) often checked the sky

Sometimes raised its head feathers in surprise

 Got to watch out
