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.

January Birds 1

It was terribly cold sometimes, and some days were so dark. No unexpected visiting birds showed up, but the regulars were there. When the snow fell I grabbed the camera and hurried out to a fantastic winter wonderland with ice sculptures like I'd never seen before. Spending all my free time there I now end up with all these images for the January Birds posts. Way too many of course

Early morning in Imazu

A grey view of the mud flat at low tide. Shelducks, ツクシガモ and Great Cormorants, カワウ stand out among other ducks etc.

The usual population of Dunlins, ハマシギ often stopped by

the Mute Swan, コブハクチョウ  that hung around for quite some time. 

Ducks, a quick fix when I need one.

Common Teal, コガモ

Eurasian Wigeon, ヒドリガモ

Gadwall, オカヨシガモ

Kestrel, チョウゲンボウ vs Carrion Crow, ハシボソガラス

Who is chasing who?
