Ochre-rumped Bunting Emberiza yessoensis

The Japanese Reed Bunting (aka Ochre-rumped Bunting) is one of three “reed buntings” that occur in Japan. It is, however, the most distinctive and colorful of the three species, and also the most restricted in range and habitat. This species only breeds in a few locations in Japan, Korea, northeast China and southeast Russia. It is classified as Near Threatened due to continued habitat loss, particularly on the Asian mainland.
