Junsai-ike, Niigata, Japan
May 4, 2013
This is the final installment for Golden Week 2013. It is raining now and I have to iron my socks for tomorrow.
Actually we had nice weather the last few days and I saw some nice birds, animals and places. Also ate and drank heaps. There are quite a few flycatchers about at the moment, though shy for the camera most of the time. Saw quite a few Blue-and-Whites but they stayed higher up in the canopy than Narcissus. Both species seen at Junsai-ike and Toyanogata for the record.

Actually, this was at Lisu-Koen which is a fenced enclosure with lots and lots of Lisu running about the place.
"Lisu" = Squirrel, but I think they are chipmunks.
(Should have claimed it was wild)
