yellow with strong beak.
|Scientific name||Eophona personata|
|English name||Japanese Grosbeak|
|Classification details||Passeriformes Fringillidae|
A bird of the family Cuckoo, characterized by its strong yellow beak. Its Japanese name, 鵤, comes from its powerful horn-like beak. The males and females are the same color, the head to the back of the eyes is completely black, and the body is light brown. The flight feathers are navy blue, and the primary flight feathers have white spots.
It makes a short "kyo-kyo" sound or a chirping "kiki, kyoki" that seems to extend the end of the sentence.
They usually move in small groups on trees in forests. It eats nuts and seeds of plants with its hard beak. Sometimes they go down to the ground to eat. Several breeding pairs gather in early summer.
Hachioji Komiya Park
Found in Komiya Park, Hachioji City. A flock of about six birds was looking for food while going back and forth between the trees and the ground. He was making a small "Kyo-Kyo" sound. When it was vertical, it looked very fat around the chest. The color of the body is very similar to that of the shime, but the color of the head and beak are different, so it can be distinguished.
Hachioji City Katakura Castle Ruins Park
Foraging on trees in Katakura Castle Site Park, Hachioji City. I heard a crackling sound coming from the tree, and when I searched the branches, I found a Grosbeak. After waiting for a while, he came out on a branch in the sun and was eating nuts.
