Aisatsu

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.

Shikanoshima

On a cold sunny day we toured the island in search of migrating birds. There were grebes, ducks and loons out there, but no big flocks and too far for my gear. I will stick to the rocks near the coast:

Temminck's or Japanese Cormorant, ウミウ





And a few Pelagic Cormorants, ヒメウ. Easy to distinguish from the others by their smaller size and green color.



Right in front of a small parking lot a pair of Ospreys, ミサゴ on their nest













High up on the top of the highest mast a Peregrine Falcon, ハヤブサ watching us
