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.

Greater Painted-snipe, タマシギ

The rice plants are still small, I could see the birds feeding in the paddy fields. Still, they are experts in hiding!

I'd love to see their chicks one day, but in July the rice plants are too tall for a clear view.

Other birds in the vicinity were the Grey-headed Lapwings, ケリ with their babies


2 parents and their 3 babies
