Today, I made a fairly large itinerary of stops. I hit the previous Otaru Group trip’s Yoichi bird group stops, as well as both sides of the river from one bridge to the other. The Marsh Tits were out and jumping back and forth between the trees on each side of the path. Quite a few Black-eared Kites were out soaring, with enough wind to make it fun for them.
Yoichi/Niki Town route for the day. Started at the green dot, ended at the yellow dot; clockwise around the river. The pink dots are where I stopped to bird watch.
