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.

The 1st day of May, Meeting of Japanese Wild Bird Society in Imazu, 今津探鳥会 3

The field near the pig sty was very quiet. Just a few Wood Sandpipers, タカブシギ. Maybe 6



One very shy Long-toed Stint, ヒバリシギ



And 1 - only 1! - stint, a Red-necked Stint, トウネン







 But many Barn Swallows, ツバメflew in to look for nesting materials.
  




On the east side of our meeting place I found these 2 Black-winged Stilts, セイタカシギ in a small lotus field

female

male







Squirting. Why would it do that?
