Black-eared Kites in Sunosaki

Some of the Black-eared Kites (Tobiトビ) were resting on the telegraph poles in the downpour.
Except this tough guy!

When we were just about to leave the fishing port, we noticed something was going on outside.
The kites started to circle very low above our car and gulls and crows were making lots of noises.


A fisherman had thrown some fish for the birds.
We were able to hear them swooping down to catch the fish. Exciting!
Well done you!

Only a couple of more to go...
All their eyes were on them.

Black-eared Kites are a common bird in Japan, especially near the sea where they can be fed by fishermen like in this place.
