A season of Chinese Goshhawk came over this year. It has been left unfinished by unseasonable weather last year in the latter half. I want to record a migration of Chinese Goshhawk well this year. Because a strong helper should observe it in this season, I feel stouthearted. Expectation to ask for!

Look at the southwestern direction from Uchiyama Pass

A few years ago Hawk tended to fly for Tatera Mt from the Yatate Mt direction.
But in late years it is tending to fly for the Kayaba Mt direction from Maisinodan Mt of the back.
