Japanese White Eye again ♪

These white eyes were flying around the trees close to my house for food at the same time with Dusky Thrush I posted here.  Familiar Bird again :-)  

We have a phrase 'おしどり夫婦. oshidori-fuufu',  in English these words literally means "Mandarin duck-couple" and equivalent word can be "lovebird".  I know what bird the word means in English. I was reminded that in both cultures birds represent the happy relationship of the (married) couple♡♡♡

And they were busy having the fruits of  Pyracantha Firethorn.

           Linking to "Saturday's critters", "Camera-Critters" and "Nature Notes"

Thank you very much for for stopping by, I appreciate your kind visits;

Hi Miyako, I love the photo's of the white eyes, they are such active little birds aren't they. We have them here as well and in some regions they are called waxeyes. They visit the feijoa tree in my neighbour's yard and not far from our kitchen window.

greetings from New Zealand,
Diana

the birds are so cute with the white eye rings, they really make their eyes stand out! I can see why they call them love birds, they really like to groom one another. Hugs from the PNW!

Marie said...

They are precious! I love that third picture of the "lovebirds!" Hope you are doing well.

Wow Miyako san, they are super adorable! Love photos of two of them together. They look very happy to have each other :-) And the photos of them eating fruits are beautiful!
There are two pigeons visiting around our home very often, and they are always together. They are indeed lovebirds, too :-)
Have a wonderful weekend, Miyako san xoxo

Miyako dear, these birds are such a love. They're indeed lovebirds, I can see how they're cuddling and taking care of each other.

Miyako, such an unusual bird with the white around the eyes. You took some great pictures of this one so we can have a look at his environment as well. Thanks! Hugs from Texas.
