Dusky Thrush "ツグミ, tugumi"


Today, I wish you to enjoy the pictures of one of the winter bird from western Japan.  I spotted them on the tree in front of my house after new year.  Oh, how didn't I pay attention or notice this beautiful migrating bird until this year:-)

Different day under different weather with different shade of color.
Looked cold  and casting cautious eyes towards me.


I'm not sure but the tree may be Japanese wax tree; they were eating its fruit.


They were all gone to another place for food now.  They provided me fun time of taking pictures; trying hard not to scare them and fly off from me :-)

           Linking to "Saturday's critters", "Camera-Critters" and "Nature Notes"

                             Thank you very much for stopping by;

The dusky thrushes are so cute, I like the black feathers outlined in grey, and the orange on their wings. Such fun to have colorful winter visitors! Hugs from the PNW.

Lovely birds, dear Miyako! I only started paying attention to birds a couple of years ago as well. I don't know why I wasn't interested in them before. I wish you a wonderful weekend. Many warm hugs from a wet and grey Finland!

Miyako, your photos are so wonderful. It's a beautiful bird.

And I know exactly what you mean about how blogging (and just having a digital camera) makes you notice things you never looked at before). I have the exact same experience, but I am glad you did't have to wait until you are as old as I am to get to this point!!

Your bird photos are great, Miyako. I also never paid much attention to birds until I started photographing them. ;)

Jane said...

Hello Miyako. Your blog is looking very cheerful to me which is needed with my cold winter so far. What a cute bird and looks similar to our american robin which is a thrush also..Michelle
