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.

Brown-eared Bulbul, ヒヨドリ

Leucism is an abnormal plumage condition caused by a genetic mutation that prevents pigment from being properly deposited on the bird's feathers.

In this case the ears are still colored, say it a bit pale, just as the bill and the feet.
So the bulbul can keep it's name. And identity.

So white and conspicuous, how long will that last?
