Winter Visitor
Common transient and winter visitor to Asakawa River basin. Up until the beginning of 2000s, flocks of several dozen of this species were recorded in the middle to lower Asakawa River basin, but almost no recording of recent observation of the flock since then. In the previous period, we had an observation record of a flock of summer plumage in May.
