Mejiro Chirping in Cherry Blossoms

These Birds Love the Sakura Flowers


The best time to catch Japanese White Eyes is when they are in these trees.

After Cherry Blossoms disappear, the birds become more skittish.

Flocks of them, migrate to the pine trees, searching for bugs to consume.

During sakura season it seems, they remain stationary a bit longer, visiting these flowers.

This photo was captured in a tree, not far from my office.  See: 16 Steps for more.
