Yuhutsu & Mukawa again2

After birding in Yuhutsu, we went to Mukawa.

We saw two and twelve Lapland Buntings.
We could take photos of two-Lapland's flock.

And we saw three Rough-legged Buzzards.
Two of them are the same individual which is adult male.

Juvenile perched on antenna of mobile phone.

These species were my friend's objective species, so he was so satisfied.

Photos in Atuma and Mukawa, Hokkaido. 14/Feb/2010.


  1. I haven't seen any Rough Legged Buzzard yet.......

    So you should come Mukawa again.
