Ducks and swans have flown to the Abukuma river near Kotori no Mori (Forests for birds).
Until a few years ago, a crowd of ducks and swans came to here because people fed bread and rice to them. But when bird flu problem occured, Fukushima city administration requested not feed to ducks and swans. After that, the numbers of ducks and swans have decreased.
I have visited here every winter because I love ducks. In my impression, ducks (especially pintails) became unfriendly since people stopped feeding to them.
