Shitamachi Canal Walk

Hello, hello, hello!!
We are back in Tokyo:)

Went for a walk by the canals in the Shitamachi area to see lovely birds we had missed for half a year.

A flock of very chatty Azure-winged Magpies (Onagaオナガ).

Some of the birds looked young like this one.

Grey Herons (Aosagiアオサギ) were on the roof of the leisure centre!

A juvenile on the railing

On the bird island, there were at least 7 Grey Herons, having a rest and/or preening, and one of them was collecting some twigs and sticks for mending his nest. (but why now??)

Sunbathing? Intimidating?

saw about 8 Spot-billed Ducks (Karugamoカルガモ) altogether but there was no sign of wintering ducks yet.
