Jobitaki or Daurian Redstart Eats a Centipede!

Today I was out watering flowers and my fruit trees when my daughter pointed out a bird we had seen the past few days along the stream next to our home. Pulling out my camera I saw it was trying to eat something and realized it was a large mukade-a Japanese centipede! The bird is a male Daurian Redstart or in Japanese jobitaki.
