Ryukyu Minivet | Pericrocotus tegimae



Endemic to southern Japan, the is a bird I had often seen and heard, however until now I had never got a decent photograph of one.

But as I was just taking a walk in a wooded area near my home, one appeared just in front of me! It would have been nice if it had faced me, but nevertheless I could take some acceptable images.

It is always nice to add an endemic to my image library!
