Daurian redstart, (joubitaki)

P1010604

1/1/2016    This beautiful bird, a male Daurian redstart, or joubitaki in Japanese,  is the first bird of the new year for me. They are common winter visitors here in Japan, and allow you to approach quite closely sometimes. They twitch their tails up and down frequently which adds to their chipper personality.
