Sorry for not having posted in a long time.

I went with my wife to visit her family in Thailand for 4 weeks in December. Then we spent a week in Japan on the way home. Here are a few of my favorite shots from around Tokyo (and a couple from Kyoto where we spent a couple of hours and a lot of $$$ to take the Shinkansen). I didn't have too much time to spend birding by I enjoyed the few opportunities I did have.

Black-eared kite (a subspecies of black kite, but the East Asia book seems to indicate its a separate species)


Japanese white-eye (these lovelies were very common)


Brown-eared bulbul, endemic to east asia and the northernmost bulbul.


Azure-winged magpie


Northern goshawk


Japanese pygmy woodpecker


Tufted duck


Northern shoveler


Northern pintail


Black-tailed gull


Large-billed crow


Common pochard


male and female Eurasian wigeon
