UME and Birds

We also enjoyed seeing the UME(Japanese apricot) blossom today.

First bird was JOUBITAKI, Daurian Redstart.
Let me have another chance of shot in short distance, please.

MOZU, Bull-headed Shrike's male on the UME tree with no blossom...

Most famous bird which match the blossom in Japan is MEZIRO, Japanese White-eye, I think.

Even we were so close to them, likely they didn't mind it because so busy for sucking nectar.

Their unique olive green and any color of blossom are well-matched. Must be typical color contrast of Japanese spring.
