Signs of Autumn in Ecology Park

So glad to see the first Teals (Kogamoコガモ) of the season in Funadaike Pond.

It is always exciting to spot the first wintering ducks in the pond and it is usually the teals who arrive first.
Who will be the next, I wonder.

In the woods, the number of Brown-eared Bulbuls (Hiyodoriヒヨドリ) is increasing day by day. Although these bulbuls are a resident bird in Chiba, some of them head south at this time of year - people often see them in a big flock flying over a narrow body of water like a strait between the mainland Japan and small off-shore islands, others arrive from somewhere else to winter here.

It is still quite warm every day but fun to look for little signs of autumn near ourselves.
