Continuation of Mishima Part 3
On the morning of a typhoon-like gale, a falcon was eating something as it flew by.
This is another individual with narrow wing stripes.
It was really a moment, so it's a terrible photo, but could it be an eurasian sparrowhawk?
Even the crow has a different atmosphere when it is in the forest.
Dark-sided flycatcher with its dark lore.
Asian brown flycatcher with its white lore.
This is another tristram's bunting that I learned about from Google Lens. It looks like a female.
It seems to be very rare.
There was a pacific golden plover. There were many birds that I had never seen before, so I learned a lot this time.
I thought it was a black-crowned night heron, but it turned out to be a striated heron because of its yellow eyes. The feathers on the upper surface have a clear outline.
I also saw a few cattle egrets.
I crawled on the ground to take a picture of an olive-backed pipit, and the spotlight shone on it nicely.
Osprey carrying today's dinner.
It seemed satisfied.
That's it for the photos of Mishima.
Perhaps it was because I started after the rain, but I was able to see more birds this time than ever before. If the conditions were better, I might have seen more, but for now, I think it was worth the trip.
