Japanese White-eye (Mejiro)
This photograph of a Japanese White-eye enjoyed widespread publication around the world last week, but I suspect is was chosen by newspaper photo editors for the cherry blossoms as much as for the bird. This White-eye certainly seems taken by the blossoms in a Tokyo park on April 1. The cherry blossoms bloomed in Tokyo on March 31, five days later than usual, according to Japanese authorities.
