This afternoon, I joined a birding event for the young, under 40 at Shinobazu pond in Ueno, Tokyo.
Dusk was beginning to fall and the few green leaves of lotus still remain were turning yellow in the low light.
At Shinobazu pond, ducks were so close by that I could sketch them with the naked eye.
But today's stars were Bramblings, a houndred of them. I was so excited that I forgot to draw. It is said that this winter we can see a lot of Bramblings in Tokyo area.
