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.

Starlings, cranes and a weasel

From a distance they seem to be all black, but when the light is right their true colors come out, shining green, purple and blue and dotted with little white specks like stars. Starlings

Common (European) Starling, ホシムクドリ

There was a flock of over 50 birds in the field

From small birds to big birds, White-naped Cranes, マナツル

No bird, a mammal. I seem to have special luck with them this month, Japanese Weasel, イタチ
