Ecology Park

After two typhoons, the water level of Funada-ike pond has been higher than ever, and probably because of that, there have been lots of visitors showing themselves well from the hide.

Falcated Duck (Yoshigamoヨシガモ)
In eclipse plumage, it is hard to tell the difference between female and male.

Shoveler (Hashibirogamoハシビロガモ)

Pochard (Hoshihajiroホシハジロ)

Coot (Oobanオオバン), Pochard and Teal (Kogamoコガモ)

Mallard (Magamoマガモ), Gadwall (Okayoshigamoオカヨシガモ) and Little Grebe (Kaitsuburiカイツブリ)

A male Mandarin Duck (Oshidoriオシドリ) was there as well but very shy. He didn't come into the open.

Great Egret (Daisagiダイサギ)

Varied Tits (Yamagaraヤマガラ) were very vocal near the visitor centre and came right up to me!
