The ground of the woodland was still covered with thick snow but we had chance to see woodland birds near feeders.
Jay (akesuカケス) - a subspecies found in Hokkaido has a very distinct cinnamon coloured head.
We had never seen so many Jays in one place!
Nuthatch (Gojukaraゴジュウカラ) - a very white underparts compared with the ones we are familiar in Britain.
Great spotted woodpecker (Akageraアカゲラ)
Marsh tit (Hashibutogaraハシブトガラ)
Dusky thrush (Tsugumiツグミ) & Jay
Japanese tit (Shijukaraシジュウカラ)
Long-tailed tit (Shimaenagaシマエナガ) - completely white face
Carrion crow (Hashibosogarasuハシボソガラス)
