Rain, Hail, or Shine

3pm feeding of the wild birds
Hyoko, Niigata, Japan, December 30, 2011

 Hyoko is a small lake in a community on the outskirts of Niigata city. In the winter months the locals give food, (rice husks), to the wild birds. Visitors can also buy packets of rice husks to feed the birds. It happens every day regardless of the weather. I think, from memory, the feeding times are 9am, 11am and 3pm.
