Chiba Port Park - inland

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:)
It is nearly time for them to go to their breeding grounds in the north.

A small flock of Grey-starlings (Mukudoriムクドリ) were foraging on the grass.
It must be a great joy for them as there are so many insects emerging out in the sun.

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...
