"Where in the World" is Ben??

Public·21 friends

Hello from Okinawa, Japan!


On this tiny little island we have been exposed to all sorts of great things. The birding has been tough with some tricky weather...especially the wind but we did manage to see the Okinawa Woodpecker today which Charley Hesse (another TB guide) reckons there are only about 200 or so left...so pretty cool! The photography thus far has been...well...non-existent in my mind but I am promised much better opportunities further north so for now...lots of food pics and just fun general pics!


One of the main targets on this portion is indeed the Okinawa Rail which we are still on the hunt for but knowing Charley, he isn't going to give up that easy. One of the days we stopped in a cool spot for lunch and there was this "weight-lifting" Okinawa Rail statue that I just had to take a photo with. If you know me you know I enjoy a good workout so it was quite an inspiration!

Bring on more Japanese species!


Cheers,

Ben
