Our area, though considered part of a big city, is actually quite rural.
We have lots of interesting birds here and there, especially near the rivers.
Many ducks (which Satoshi doesn't believe can fly) and many birds that I have never seen in Hawaii.
One interesting bird is this heron, grey heron to be exact. In Japanese, it is called an aosagi. I thought it would mean blue heron because "aoi" is blue or green in Japanese, but the English name is grey heron.
I think it was pretty cool how it stayed so still while I tried to take its photo from atop a bridge, and then from alongside the river.
Do you have interesting birds/animals where you live?
