弾丸みたいって思いました。
レンジャク類は羽質もなんだかヌメッ(?)とした雰囲気なので、
なおさら弾丸みたいです。
英語ではWax wingって呼ばれるんですよね。なんとなく納得です。
I thought that he seemed to be a bullet. Because a feather is very minute, I am different from the soft feeling in Wax wing sp, and he seems to be a bullet. Because the point of the tail is yellow, they are called “Ki renjyaku” in Japan. It is the meaning that “Ki” calls yellow. The kind that the point of the tail is red is called “Hi renjyaku” with the same kind. “Hi” is a meaning of the red.

こんなに風の抵抗がなさそうで、弾丸のように飛び立っていますが、
飛び方はあんまり余裕のあるタイプじゃありません。
ばたばたって一生懸命飛んで、滑翔とか急旋回とかそういう器用なことは出来ないです。
ムクドリと飛び方がよく似ています。
そして大きさもほとんど一緒なので、単独で飛んでいると時々間違えてしまいます。
There seems to be no resistance of the wind, and he flies away like a bullet, but is not too good at the way of flying. He can flap hard and do neither the gliding nor the rapid turn. He look alike White-cheeked Starling (Sturnus cineraceus) and how to fly well. And, the sizes of them are also almost the same. I sometimes make a mistake when he fly alone.

Only the head is outstanding very much. Really… 🙂
