    • Hello Randall,
      So happy you could spend a few moments with our crows. I am sad that they are shown in this type of setting, but felt it’s important to show the “human” aspect and how we can and do affect our fellow creature’s surroundings…

      Autumn has come to Japan, bringing with it cooler weather and the start of the fall foliage. I hope you are doing well too!

    • Yes, it is terrible 😦
      Japan has very strict rubbish laws, and it is also common knowledge to take home any personal rubbish with you (if there are no disposal bins near by). Unfortunately, there are people who don’t seem to care 😦
      There are volunteers and public workers to work hard to keep parks clean. However, the principle that some people cannot even clean up their own mess is infuriating. Ah, “humanity”….
      As always, thank you for your comment!

  1. Wow, Takami. My heart aches that humans have so little regard for the environment. Surely there were rubbish bins nearby, and on the really small chance that there wasn’t why not take their trash home with them!?

    • Hello Dries, thanks much for your comment.
      Yes, I feel embarrassed for our species too 😦 It is a rule to take home your own rubbish if there are no disposal bins nearby, and Japan has strict rubbish laws. However, there are always some people who are selfish with no regard for the environment (and for fellow humans)… Ah, humanity…😢

    • Hello Tanja,
      I feel exactly the same. It was heartbreaking and infuriating.

      This was at a public area (a lovely park) and very early in the morning. It was Monday morning, so the rubbish was leftovers after Sunday-night partying most likely…

      In Japan, there are volunteers and public employees who do amazing work of “cleaning up” and maintaining parks and public areas. However, what annoys me is how too many folks don’t even bother properly disposing their own rubbish. It is sad.

      • I agree, Takami. While it’s great to have volunteers to clean up, if each of us acted responsibly, the volunteers could apply their energies to something other than trash!
        I often don’t understand people at all.

    • Thanks much for your visit and comment Peter. I am sorry that your favorite birds were shown next to a rubbish pile 😦 I wanted to show how we humans are affecting this world on so many levels…

      Yes, these particular crows have impressive beak. In Japanese they are called ハシブトガラス (“hashibuto-garasu”) which can literally be translated to large-billed crow.

      I promise to post another crow photo in the coming month! It will have a more positive tone 🙂

      Best wishes,
      Takami
