Birding in Shimane5 -Other birds-

Finally I upload photos of other birds.

I explain difference between "Hikawa" and "Hiikawa". One letter "i"  means different object.
"Hikawa" is a name of town in Shimane prefecture and "Hiikawa" is a name of river.
Hiikawa river flows in Hikawa town.

Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) was near, this individual kept opening its nib, I didn't know the reason.
