Birdwatching and Insect watching in Maioka-koen (July 3, 2010)

In the middle of wet season, birding in Japan is not normally attractive.  It is almost same in Maioka-koen.  Many bird photographers were just sitting nearby a pond to photograph Common Kingfisher while many kids were exciting to look for frogs and dragonflies. 

A House Swift, a local resident, was flying among a flock of Barn Swallow.  Some young individuals of Long-tailed Tit and Great Tit are tame as they are busy for feeding. 

Japanese Bush Warbler and Lesser Cuckoo were still vocal.  Particularly, Lesser Cuckoo was calling very vocally. 

A family of Bamboo Partridge suddenly appeared from bush.  Two chicks are already fairly large.

Rather than birds, I enjoyed photographing flowers and insects.
