Here we are! This is the Abukuma River in Fukushima City.
Ducks and Swans
Wild ducks and swans.
They get fed here…
If we look to the left, we see that there are no birds…
They are attracted to this spot by the food.
A pretty wild duck
A pretty crow! (This was the only crow in this flock. I think she has figured out where to snag a free breakfast!)
Do you see any cranes?
No, you won’t see any cranes here. Cranes no longer live in Tohoku. In Japan, they live in Hokkaido nowadays. (I learned this doing research for my manuscript.)
What a lovely spot to visit!
