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.

今津探鳥会, Starlings, Kestrel, Falcon

On Sunday, November 4th the weather was great. Sunny but not hot with just a little wind. I walked around the Imazu area with the members of WBSJ in our monthly meeting. All birds were counted and recorded. There were 2 Common Starlings, ホシムクドリ

A male Kestrel, チョウゲンボウ flew by

One Dunlin, ハマシギ all by himself skirting the waterfront. The water was so calm, I could see the reflection as well as the shadow

A Red Stingray, アカエイ feeding in shallow water

After the meeting some of us went to look for the Drongo (See previous post) In the same area were Northern Lapwings, タゲリ posing for me between some flowers. The sunlight lit up the metallic shine in their feathers, bringing out the colors green, blue and purple . Maybe the last colorful picture of the year.

The day finished majestically with this Peregrine Falcon,  ハヤブサ
Magnificent bird!
