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.

Short-eared Owl, コミミズク

Unusual visitor to the Imazu area. But also easy to miss. The bird was flying low over the fields and stopped right in front of me. It sat for a few minutes on the loose hay and closely watched a small flock of wagtails. When the flock had passed he wriggled his bum into the grass, hunched his shoulders, looked out once more and... vanished. I Could not see one single feather anymore.
