Birds at Natural Park and Christmas Deco. at Hospital;

On 1st, we went 30 min. drive away natural park to check the winter bird.  Before that day at the end of last moth when I visited ophthalmology at general hospital for regular check-up after the surgery,  I found early Christmas Decoration inside the entrance.
Finding Redstart, Decoration and the Illustration(here), I was tempted to arrange a post using these features :-)   Pictures are from inside the observatory, sorry bit blurry.


My husband took pictures of this Pochard dive into the water.
Happy having new knowledge not only Grebe but also some ducks also duck p:-)
This Osprey was perching really far away from where we were(^^;)
*Inside of the Hospital Entrance*
These decoration gave me peace of mind a little.  Kids with parents had happy faces, hope the decoration also ease their minds as well.   (by cell-phone)

This doll is our prefecture's Local Mascot Character, 'Choruru'.

           Busy December had started nicely for all of you. I was out all day today. 
                  Mochi (rice cake)-making and other things are waiting :-)

Miyako, such a lovely bird in the first picture. The diving ducks are so funny with their tail feathers in the air. And your decoration picture is adorable with the Santa climbing the wall! Have a lovely week, my friend. Hugs from Texas.

Dearest Miyako,
Hope your check up went well and that you are steadily improving!
Lovely bird photos and I had to laugh also with the acrobatic Santa!
Sending you hugs and thanks for the visit. Dad is at home with lots of meds for his CGF (Congestive Heart Failure).
Sending you lots of hugs.

The hospital has created a fun and whimsical display, a nice way to not think about why you're there.
You captured some interesting birds to share this week Miyako.

I love the bird images and those Santas are so cute and funny. Children epecially must love them. I am just off to MAlawi now and the news is good. Allhtough everyone (car crash) has whiplash and DAniel left side of his face looks like he has one 10 ounds with M Ali, they are OK. The Cure Hospital are leaning us a car to make out planned trip to Zambia so that is wonderful news. I know I will NOT have internet there but while away I will read posts (when I can and internet permits) but am NOT commenting. I have schedduled all my posts in. Have a lovely Christmas.

Dearest Miyako, your redstart is such a lovely bird, I like the colors down its back. It's great you could capture the Osprey and the cute ducks, too, I adore ducks. I enjoy all your art work in your header etc, so fancy. I hope you had a good checkup, the climbing Santas are so funny. Hugs from the PNW, Hannah, my duck dish is made of glass, I don't how.
