woodpecker

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


light snow -
a woodpecker hammers
in the silence

basically a kigo for all autumn, but these days I hear him every morning when I open the window.
And today, in the silence of freshly fallen snow, the sound was most eerie in the valley !

extinct birds

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



autumn memories -
the sound of birds
long extinct




. WKD : BIRD SAIJIKI







:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



New Zealand

The value of conservation is better understood by an appreciation of lost biodiversity. New Zealand's greatest biological loss is 42 percent of its' terrestrial birds since human settlement 700 years ago. The 57 extinct birds evolved in an isolated land, and without mammal predators, developed various levels of flightlessness, ground feeding and nesting habits, and fearlessness over millions of years.

woodpecker drumming

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


early morning -
a woodpecker's drumming
fills the valley


After the typhoon, mornings have become cool and I can leave the windows wide open ... this woodpecker seems to drum on the bamboo, it reverberates in a low tone all over the place and he is very powerfull, no breaks, just hammering away ...
