Mugimaki





A female Mugimaki Fycatcher and another male Narcissus Flycatcher in Goryokaku Park yesterday morning.

I had got up at 5am and was in the park before 6am looking for yesterday's Narcissus Flycatcher, there were actually 2 or 3 of them around today and they were setting up temporary territories and singing.





The weather was grey and dull and with a slow lens it was hard to get any sharp shots of such an active little bird................




This female Mugimaki Flycatcher was a nice find and was probably the tamest least active bird on show...................


Shame it wasn't a male but the female is pretty cute too...........





There were lots of other small birds whizzing about the cherry blossoms too. Several Eastern Crowned Warbler, lots of other small brownish birds that were mostly Asian Brown Flycatcher. These were very active and difficult to get a shot of..............




There were also some female Narcissus Flycatcher but I couldn't find any Sootys. I also had a brief view of this male Blue and White Flycatcher.



I had an even briefer view of a Siberian Blue Robin which I could hear singing in the middle of the park. The Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker from the previous day was still present as was this Great Spotted Woodpecker.


This is one of 2 female Russet Sparrows, another passage visitor.........


And of course there were lots of Red Cheeked Starlings everywhere..........



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