Japanese Paradise Flycatcher Nesting



After Koga, my friend and I went to the Dazaifu area to look for Brown Boobok and Japanese Paradise Flycatcher.

Although it was too early for the owls, we could get the rare chance to see a pair of Japanese Paradise Flycatchers building a nest with cedar bark, moss and spider webs!

It was extremely difficult to photograph from our position on the road, with just a tiny gap between branches and leaves to work with. Still, a few photos of the male came out reasonably well.
