Junsai-ike, Niigata, Japan
April 13, 2013
Last Saturday morn Mr Honma and myself visited Junsai-ike from 7am til it started raining at about 10. I felt cold and called it a day. Typically it became fine and warm once I got home and packed up the camera.
Some blossoms about but also bits of melting snow under the hedges etc. I think when the weather became finer it would have been too crowded with humans for birds.
|We saw this lost bunny when we arrived. It's haunted me since. I should have tried to catch it.|

Thought this was an Eurasian Siskin female however, many thanks to Pat Moll with the comment below
I think: first time for me to ID these.
