Helen, my tall sister in law, is very good at spotting birds. Here is one she found yesterday on the Hakone side of Myojin ga take. Japanese white-eyes are fairly common here, but this was bigger, browner, with a bright yellow beak and different shaped spectacles.
Does any one have any idea what it is?
Update 16/04/2010: It's a Hwamei or Melodious Laughingthrush. Thanks to andrewt.--
