Amami Ōshima, Japan - 14 maj 2017

Juvenile and adult of Amami Woodcock.
To see all 8 enigmatic species of woodcocks of the world one will have to visit the island of Amami Ōshima to see the Amami Woodcock. The night drives on this fantastic island also produced a wealth of reptiles, amphibians and the "ancient" bearlike Amami Rabbit. The woodcocks were easy to find if one knows which road to drive. Now I have 6 out of 8 woodcocks in the bag.
