銀喉長尾山雀 / Shima Enaga


Shima Enaga is a subspecies of the long-tailed tit (Enaga in Japanese) which lives only in Hokkaido. It’s quite a small bird, at about 14 centimeters (which includes a long tail,) with small black eyes like two dots. Its feathers are white and puffy, and its round body is like a small white ball. In Japan, some photos of the Shima Enaga went kind of viral on Twitter in 2013 or 2014, and the bird gained fame. Since then, it has been very popular, especially for ornithologists and photography enthusiasts. Some people call it the sprite of snow. It can be seen in forest environments.
