A cold slow snowy winter week


A Varied Tit at Onuma a few days ago. Not much to report, it's suddenly got pretty cold and I haven't been out much..............


After the recent deluge of eagles it was back to the more mundane tits and nuthatches...........




The Ural Owl was still around, there were also lots of woodpeckers in the woods........

Here is a record shot only of the female Black Woodpecker, the biggest species in Japan.


From the biggest to the smallest............a female Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker.


Nothing much at all in Hakodate. One or 2 Dusky Thrush and Hawfinch, Brown Dipper, Grey Starling, Wigeon plus the usual common stuff, that's about it.........

Hope the next weekend is as productive as recent ones.......

Thanks for clicking this link........

  2. Lovely, Stu. We finally got cold, too, after an unseasonably warm December and first 2 weeks of January.

  3. Yeah, nothing mundane about these birds or photos. I've still never seen a nuthatch nor have had a chance to see that big ol' woody. I've seen a few eagles on the other hand.

  4. Thanks for the comments, I guess I do take the Varied Tits for granted..................

    their comments. Don't underestimate the beauty of the more common bird, as your photos show they are so well captured lovely little birds!
