Monday, the sun came out, even if it was for a little bit, the air very crisp.
I walked over to Suigetsu Park. Most of the ume/momo (apricot/peach) trees are in full bloom and one of the many sakura (cherry) trees has started to bloom.
As I was taking some photos, I noticed a group of mejiro (which literally means white eye) attacking the flowers, I'm not sure why they do this, but I've also seen other birds do this to the sakura (cherry) trees, I wonder if there are bugs or something in the flower that they like?
We also have mejiro in Hawaii which surprised Satoshi. I think they were introduced to Hawaii to take care of insects.
Anyway, these photos were the best out of what I took, these birds move quite quickly, plus I didn't want to get too close to scare them away.
I leave you with a short video of the mejiro, sorry I couldn't zoom in on them, I was taking this with my iPhone (which doesn't zoom) and like I said before, I didn't want to get too close to scare them. It was overcast, so the video is a bit dark. Also, there is the rustling of my plastic bag in the background.
