In Hokkaido, Japan's second-largest island, fluffy white little birds flutter through the trees. They look like bouncing cotton balls, but are in fact the Shima Enaga bird. Much loved by the Japanese, these sub species of the long tailed tit is found only in Hokkaido.
All members of the species are tiny, measuring 13 to 15 centimeters long—and half of that is tail! But in Hokkaido, these birds have a characteristic that adds to their cuteness. Typically, long-tailed birds have distinct black “eyebrows” that sweep above their eyes. However, the birds in Hokkaido lose their eyebrows as they transition into adulthood, leaving them with a pure white face that makes them look like little snowmen.
