  1. Ah so handsome! I recognised the bird since we have two species of Redstarts here in Ireland. I have many photographs of them but never posted on this blog yet. Glad our Redstarts have such a handsome cousin 🙂

    • Oh yes, the ladies (and both male/female human photographers too) did take note, I believe 😀

      For such a small bird, he had charisma 100 times his size!
      Daurian redstarts (aka “joubitaki” in Japanese) are seasonal birds here, only around from Winter – early Spring, so all Japanese bird-lovers rejoice to see him around 😀 (The females are different colours, but still very very charming. I hope to make some photos this winter!)

    • Nasukoさま ❤
      こんにちは!いつもありがとうございます!!
      こちらのジョウビ君、ほんっとにハンサムですね ❤
      必死に縄張り宣言・メスにアピールする姿に一目惚れしました(笑)

  2. Oh wow!!! Par excellent capture, Takami!!! What bird is this? I cannot read Japanese so that being said, I’m asking. LOL LOVE this!! Your talent amazes me how you can capture these birds! ☺️

    • Hello dear Amy!
      As always, thank you for your kind comments ❤
      This handsome fellow is a male Daurian Redstart ("joubitaki" in Japanese). They are seasonal birds here, only around from Winter – early Spring, so all Japanese bird-lovers rejoice to see them 😀 (The females are different colours, but still charming. I hope to make some photos this winter!)

    • Hello Sylvie ❤
      Thank you for your comment. Yes, these small birds are challenging to capture with the camera.

      In Japan, these birds (Daurian redstart) are only here during winter months. I hope to see him again during the winter. I hope to see the "lady" bird too 🙂 (this photo is the male…)

    • Thank you! All Japanese bird-lovers rejoice to see the Daurian redstarts during winter – early Spring months 🙂 I hope to get some photos of the female Daurian redstarts too. (Keeping fingers crossed)

    • Thank you Tanja! Yes, you’re correct, he is a male Daurian Redstart (“joubitaki”) in Japanese. Daurian redstarts are seasonal birds here, only around from Winter – early Spring, so all Japanese bird-lovers rejoice to see him around 😀 (The females are different colours, but still charming. I hope to make some photos this winter!)

    • Thank you Donna! Daurian redstarts are seasonal birds here, only around from Winter – early Spring, so all Japanese bird-lovers rejoice to see him around 😀 (The females are different colours, but still charming. I hope to make some photos this winter!)
