So here's some more photos from Tadewara Marsh that I haven't posted. It's a pretty nice place for enjoying holidays. The marsh is filled with Chestnut-eared Bunting's songs as well as Zitting Cisticola's, Eurasian Skylark's and Green Pheasant's. The forest around the marsh is normally slightly less lively but some nice birds can still be found, especially the Japanese Thrush which is actually quite numerous but extremely difficult to photograph.

The Green Pheasant was especially common around the marsh and their loud calls could be heard all day long. Too bad none of them came close to the board walk area, so I could only get some very distant shots showing their funny displays.

|It has a slightly different impression from the Hokkaido's Marsh Tit, but I still can't quite figure out how.|
