Chinese Goshawk birds visit Zamami Island
September 24, 2014 Hirokazu Otsubo, correspondent of Ryukyu Shimpo
The Zamami Wild Bird Club members observed Chinese Goshawk birds from a lookout at Mount Takatsuki. The migratory birds, which herald the start of autumn, flew in the sky above the island.
On September 13, one day later than last year, the birds were confirmed to have arrived on the island for the first time this year. They have since been arriving consistently. At least 111 birds were observed on September 20.
In Zamami Village, people have been observing several migratory birds. Further into autumn, locals and visitors will have more opportunities to watch various friendly, wild birds.
