赤岩山 Mt. Akaiwa
A bear was seen in the vicinity of Karakawa Station this morning. Please be careful.
After entering the hiking track, I suddenly heard a bird that I had no idea what it was. It was quite an interesting sound. I had a little search for it and found it. There were 2 of them, so they were probably a male and female. They seemed a little agitated, so I guess they had a nest nearby. It was a medium sized bird. Apparently they grow to about 29 cm in length. I'm really happy that I found something I'd never seen before.
In the morning before my ride, these 'blue rock thrushes' were singing on my carport roof. I like their songs. They are often in front of my house.
