A Great Egret (Daisagiダイサギ) landed on the edge of the lake when we were about to have lunch. I sneaked behind a tree and took some photos of him:)
Now lunch, then.
But the peaceful moment didn't last long because a pair of Azure-winged Magpies started screaming in a tree near us.
They were really agitated and we could see him puffed up!
The pair of magpies seemed rather determined to get rid of the crow family, which finally flew into another tree. The magpies won!
The walk in Chiba Koen was a very pleasant one.
