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.

Spring tour of the west

In this beautiful weather it's hard to stay inside and do home work. I drove west to my favorite spots.

In Imazu the Rustic Buntings were still around

A Black-faced Bunting, アオジ near the Daffodils, 水仙 made a nice scene

Towards Itoshima, 糸島 a small flock of Chestnut-eared Buntings, ホオアカ...

...posed briefly in front of some purple colored flowers and even on the Rape seed, 菜の花

Driving along the coast I saw a large number of Loons, オオハム too far to see details.

A stop at a Cherry blossom point: Japanese White-eye, 桜とメジロ

Grey Wagtail, キセキレイ in summer feathers, 夏羽

Pacific Reef Heron, クロサギ as usual

The Blue Rock Thrush, イソヒヨドリ dancing on the concrete blocks

At last a quick farewell to the Red-flanked Bluetail, ルリビタキ. He will be leaving soon...
