A Meadow Bunting (Hoojiroホオジロ) was quietly foraging on his own in the garden of our B&B.
It'd snowed a bit during the night,
which left someone's trace...
A White Wagtail (Hakusekireiハクセキレイ) was dancing on ice:)
better than the people in the show, no doubt!
A big flock of Japanese Grosbeaks (Ikaruイカル) were moving busily from one tree top to another.
A Varied Tit (Yamagaraヤマガラ) found a feeder full of fat in the garden of our B&B.
So did the Great Tits (Shijuukaraシジュウカラ).
Great Spotted Woodpeckers (Akageraアカゲラ),
turned up near the feeders.
Our first Nathatch in Japan!
