All quiet in Hakodate

Japanese Waxwing

A Japanese Waxwing from Hakodate last year. In early 2018 there was a huge invasion of Waxwings (of both species) right in the middle of town. It lasted about 3 weeks. This year however it’s very quiet near my apartment: Great Egret, a few Dusky Thrush, Daurian Redstart, a handful of Goosander and a lone Long-tailed Rosefinch have been all I’ve been able to find this week………….maybe some Waxwings will show up soon.
