Birding Spirit

The birding spirit is coming back slowly, it seems. Starting off with this Red-billed Leiothrix outside my window. There's a group of about 10 birds hanging around the bush outside every morning. A female Red-flanked Bluetail also made a surprising appearance few days ago. A male Daurian Redstart, some Dusky and Pale Thrushes and few Oriental Bush Warblers are also regulars.


  1. We don't get the Leiothrix up here, great looking bird...........

    What have you been up to if not birding? Pachinko? Drinking happoshu/shochu? Reading manga? Not much else to do for young folk in Japan!

  2. Yes, a beautiful bird. We wouldn't see it with the birding spirit. Don't let it get too far away.
