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.

Kumamoto birding

I got out of the car to scan the river and I saw 4 Crested Kingfishers, ヤマセミ . 2 Pairs seemed to be chasing each other, fighting for territory.

A Black Kite,トビ cruising overhead

some buntings I had not seen for a while: Rustic Bunting, カシラダカ

At a frozen stream a Brown Dipper, カワガラス on ice. . . sounds like a new kind of  New Years drink :-)
