White-shouldered Starling, カラムクドリ and Chestnut-cheeked Starling, コムクドリ 

A big flock of White-cheeked Starlings, クドリ (the common ones in Kyushu) is presently flying around Muromi River. Among them is a White-shouldered Starling, カラムクドリ. I saw just one. Their preference for high trees made it hard to detect, but I was lucky and with a little help from another birder I managed a few shots.

Besides that a flock of Chestnut-cheeked Starlings, コムクドリ is flying around the same area. These birds move very fast and are not easy to keep track of. They like to fly! I managed again a few shots before they disappeared in the foliage of tall trees.

Higambaba, Red Spider Lilies. Characteristic Autumn flower in Japan, growing along the edges of yellow green rice fields. I love this time of the year!
