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.

May birds 1

This year nature seems to be in a hurry. I was too occupied with my new work schedule to go out and when I finally broke away from my private worries the forest was all green with young leaves, grasses stood quite tall and the calls of young birds demanding food sounded everywhere. The foliage was already too thick to see them. So very few photos of this period, but the one that was always heard singing in a loud voice is here:

A young Japanese Great Tit, シジュウカラ - just left the nest - wondering what is edible and what is not

It's got the right size... 

... right color...

... but not the right taste

The rains came early too
