Monday morning blues
A male Blue and White Flycatcher and a male Narcissus Flycatcher, 2 of the most striking summer visitors to Hokkaido.
We were on the east coast early in the morning (where these 2 photos were taken) and Onuma this afternoon. The forests were full of summer migrants............in addition to the above 2 species there were loads of Eastern Crowned Warbler and Japanese Thrush singing. Brown Thrush, Japanese Robin and Asian Stubtail were also around..............it was the start of another long days birding.
