Hooo hokekyo / ホーホケキョ

February 8, 2010


1964, Japan
1 May (top: Meadow Bunting)
10 February (bottom: Japanese Bush Warbler / Japanese Nightingale)
design: Saburo Watanabe (top) & Masaru Kimura

About same time to the last featured bird stamps from Czechoslovakia.  Those two birds are known for spring song birds.  Choice of brunch, flower and the backdrop colours are somehow very Japanese. Sound of a Japanese Bush Warbler (Uguisu) is evocative for me – Hooo hokekyo!
