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.

トケン Cuckoos

First bird of the day: Common Cuckoo, カッコウ Flew quickly in and out of the Sakura grove

Another bird was feeding on hairy caterpillars in the canopy: Oriental Cuckoo, ツツドリ
 It didn’t come down much...

...but suddenly swooped up a bite right in front of me!

Then there was this reddish one, also a  Oriental Cuckoo, ツツドリ

At last the small Lesser Cuckoo, オトトギス
