アオバズク / Brown Hawk-Owl
I was informed of the appearance of a Brown Hawk-Owl at a certain shrine, so I went out to the shrine.
When I was shooting alone all the time, I never received any such information, so I wondered what everyone else was doing. I was convinced when I learned that the birders had created a fairly extensive network and were frequently exchanging information with each other.
I think that people like me who started out in photography or people new to birding often search for birds alone. If you have a chance, I recommend you to join some kind of community, because the information efficiency is completely different. I am a person who cannot be bothered to get involved with other people, so I have come a long way. Of course, there is give and take, so individual exploration is fundamental. However, as a company employee, I don’t have that much time to devote to it, so I am always grateful for their help.
Aim at the gap between the trees from almost right beside it.
Looking straight into the camera.
We did not know the details of the nesting condition yet, so we did not stick around and pull it up.
I was looking forward to seeing the chicks hatch, but unfortunately, they abandoned their nest, probably due to construction work in the area.
