This month I had a lot of tasks, so 30 days passed since I posted a former article. The theme of this article is Red-cheecked Staring. Red-cheecked Staring breeds in East Japan, however it is not common around the region but local distribution. The most common staring in Japan is White-cheeked Starling, they are not migratory bird so maybe many Japanese birder cannot image the migratory starings. Many time I visited islands around Japan for birding and found this species. Almost all time they were flock, not one individual so they migrate with their fellows. The mean number of flock is around 8, and I never seen the flock comprise over 20 individuals. In their breeding area the density is so high. I watched the conspecific struggle to get tree horror sometime. According to a birds guide, their breeding region is E Japan and a little area of E China. But they are not globally treated and ranked LC at the Red List. I recommend you to hear the song of this species, their songs are resemble to the subsongs of White-cheeked Starling and it's so nice. For announcement, This month maybe I cannot upload articles so many because I really busy on my research, but I wanna write one or two article.
