From Camellia Festival (part 3)

  *Bridges and Birds at the back of the park on the Festival day*
Behind the building of the park, there is a wide greenery and lake in Ejio-park next city. After all the event was over around 4 pm, I strolled around the lake and sought for things I could take pictures for links :-)    (my 2 previous posts are about the festival.)

People were feeding for the carps, ducks were not close to them;
Name of this bridge,  'Bridge of the Adventure'




Some pictures of birdies I took in a hurry;  I kept my husband wait to go home  p:-)
Found a Meadow Bunting, Oh My! for the first time. Unfortunately so far away and not good picture. We call them 'Hoo-jiro, 頬白' which means 'cheek-white'


      Linking this post to  
                        and  "Nature Notes"

So sorry for my absence to my dear friends.  I'll be able to visit you after I attend springtime Buddhist sermon tomorrow.  I had a slight cold (runny nose), hope you all are doing well at the turn of the season.  See you in your blog till next week♪

Good morning Miyako,
As always, I love visiting you. You always have beautiful photos of beautiful Japan to share with us. I wonder why the bridge is named "Bridge of the Adventure." I hope you feel better.

The Meadow Bunting is a beautiful bird. That's a neat pedestrian bridge over the lake, with a bumpout area so people can feed the water critters.

Hi Miyako san. I enjoyed your beautiful pictures! Birds are very cute and looks like they are enjoying a nice day :-) I don't think I've seen Hoo-jiro before. The white cheek is very lovely!

Sorry to hear you've got a runny nose. I hope you get better soon. Have a wonderful day, Miyako san!

Hello dear Miyako, I love the ducks and the wagtails. Many warm hugs from Finland.

Your husband is not alone in waiting for his wife to walk around looking for just a few more photo opportunities! If we were lucky enough to be in the same place at the same time, he and Bill could keep each other company while you and I took pictures ))

That festival was held in a beautiful place; I'm so glad you kept him waiting. These photos are lovely. Sweet birds and I love walking bridges like that one.

Anni said...

Personally, I think the Bunting is a GREAT photo. So colorful and pretty perched atop the tree/bush.

Your yellow tipped duck photos on the pond are extra special.

And the festival, I'm sure, was a great outing.

Thank you kindly for sharing this link at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

You managed to capture a good number of interesting birds to share. I was fascinated by the "bridge of the adventure"where it appears everyone is enjoying themselves. Thank you to your husband to wait while you took your photos. :-)
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Miyako and I hope you get rid of your cold soon.

Miyako, Great photos of the birds, I especially liked the ducks.

The Meadow Bunting is beautiful, perched on the branch, looking upwards. Great photo. The ducks are such fun creatures to watch paddling around. Looks like you had a wonderful time there.

Laura said...
