It sure would be nice to have a bird expert on hand, to identify these critters.

Hopefully, one of my bird-shooting buddies, will be coming back to Okinawa in the near future.

Having looked at a few hundred bird photos, I decided to call these Wood Sandpipers.

Tringa glareola would be the Latin name of the breed.

They are migratory, winter visitors to the island, according to Wildlife Okinawa


Takabu-shigi (タカブシギ) is their name in Japan.

The Ministry of the Environment in Japan says they are vulnerable on the Red List.
