The Hanami (parties under cherry blossoms) season has gone like a flash as it does every year, and the temperature is going up and up day by day.
I cycled to Chiba Port Park to see if I could see Brown-eared Bulbuls (Hiyodoriヒヨドリ) supping the necter from the cherry blossoms.
They were everywhere in the park and making the most of the time with the blossoms:)
I heard Japanese White-eyes, which are other necter supping birds, but could not locate them as they are such tiny birds that they can easily hide themselves among the leaves and flowers.
A Hawfinch (Shimeシメ) was preening quietly away from the party goer bulbuls:)
A small flock of Grey-starlings (Mukudoriムクドリ) were foraging on the grass.
A pair of Oriental Greefinches (Kawarahiwaカワラヒワ) were bathing in a small puddle.
A bulbul was singing in the fresh green although his tune is not like a song...
