Parakeet in Ginkgo tree, Tokyo

Lovely photo of a parakeet in a Ginkgo tree in Tokyo, Japan.
Photo by Japanese photographer Yoshinori Mizutani: ""When I first saw them I was afraid – I thought I was going to be attacked, like in Hitchcock's The Birds." The parrots were taken to Tokyo as pets in the 70s from tropical regions such as India and Sri Lanka, and the city's trees are now inhabited by feral parakeets. Mizutani photographed them mainly at night, when they would roost in local Ginkgo trees. Mizutani says, "I wanted people to know another side of Tokyo by photographing a surprising scene beautifully.""
