Finally, it's got rather cool here in Japan and the little birds have started moving around in the park in big flocks.
Eastern Great Tits (Shijukaraシジュウカラ)
Long-tailed Tits (Enagaエナガ)
Varied Tits (Yamagaraヤマガラ)
There were also Japanese Pygmy Woodpeckers (Kogeraコゲラ) and Japanese White-eyes (Mejiroメジロ) in the flock.
In the Chinese Elm trees nearby, a flock of Oriental Greenfinches (Kawarahiwaカワラヒワ) were feeding on the seeds. Another bird-watcher told me that there was a Brambling (Atoriアトリ) in the flock half an hour before I got there but he had gone. Pity... Still, the Greenfinches are as lovely.
Nector-loving Brown-eared Bulbuls (Hiyodoriヒヨドリ) & Japanese White-eyes (Mejiroメジロ) gathered in the autumn-blooming cherry trees.
