A Beautiful Autumnal Morning

A pair of Varied Tits (Yamagaraヤマガラ) were busy flying back and forth and I was wondering what exactly they were doing.

A-ha! I realised that they were caching food for a rainy day.

How can you remember where you have buried them?!

The seeds they were collecting were of Japanese Snowbell (Egonokiエゴノキ), famous as the Varied Tits' favourite, which are said to be extremely bitter to human taste.

Japanese White-eyes (Mejiroメジロ) were taking advantage of autumn-blooming cherry blossoms.

Japanese Pygmy Woodpeckers (Kogeraコゲラ)

A small flock of Oriental Greenfinches (Kawarahiwaカワラヒワ)

A large number of Dragonflies were sitting quietly in the sun everywhere to be warmed up in the park. The time left for them is rather short and they must make the most of it.
