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.

Migrating birds, 渡り鳥

After many sunny warm days the cold came back. And suddenly the migrating birds were there.

Watching Japanese Robin, コマドリ in the snow

The next day the weather cleared. Narcissus Flycatcher, キビタキ

I was particularly happy to see the Asian Stubtail, ヤブサメ because I'd missed it last year

Watching from above: Asian Brown Flycatcher, コサメビタキ

At the same time, Blue-and-white Flycatcher, オオルリ

Komachan again, coming out in the sunshine. 

Won't you pose with the purple violets for me?

A little further please...
The Black-faced Buntings, アオジ will do 

Action in the maple trees: Goldcrest, キクイタダキ

Fluttering her wings in anticipating display, the female is waiting for her gift from her mate
Japanese Great Tit, シジュウカラ
