Living of the wild bird
Because there is waterside environment of the natural forest and Lake Nakatsugawa, Miyagase leading to Tanzawa, as for the Aikawa Park, a wild bird and the waterside to finish in the mountainous district can observe a wild bird to finish through the four seasons. About these main wild birds, I publish it by a photograph and the commentary that I took in Aikawa Park sequentially. (Sakamoto Kengo)
※By "the living of the wild bird," I convey "the living of the wild bird" and charm of "nature" of the Aikawa Park by the contribution of Ken Sakamoto five people who are a specialist in bird-watching.
The mandarin ducks which gathered before going over to the north country
2-30 mandarin ducks are always seen in the downstream of the Niizeki hut bridge during winter, but in the beginning of April
A flock of about 150 mandarin ducks was seen. And it has disappeared in the middle of April.
It seems that I gathered before going over to the north country. But I often stay in around ten usual.
The wild birds which came to smoke the honey of cherry blossoms
The cherry blossoms of the Aikawa Park already became the cherry tree with early leaves, but wild birds come to breathe the honey of the flower and a bush warbler stops and sings flourishingly and eats the insect which cherry blossoms are accompanied by, and the cherry blossoms are the trees which are important for wild birds.
The winter birds which are seen in an open space of the Aikawa Park
This winter has very few wild birds, and the same tendency continues in the Aikawa Park.
I almost rarely see it other than the waterfowl (a waterfowl or common cormorant) even if I walk the garden, but still winter birds are seen around the Kazeno-oka Hill and the contact open space.
