It got noticeably colder than a few weeks earlier and lots of leaves have fallen, which means a great season for bird-watchers!
A huge berry-bearing tree (I should know what tree it was!) was very popular with birds.
Several Dusky Thrushes (Tsugumiツグミ) are wintering birds here in Chiba. Just after they have arrived, they tend to stay in the trees, looking for berries.
Oriental Turtle Doves were in the same tree but they were much too high to take photos of.
