day 159 - Urban Birds of Japan (5)
The Shinki Bird. (Basu himejii)
Distribution: Chiefly around the Himeji region.
Habitat and Behaviour: The Shinki is restricted to urban areas where it is found predominantly around bus stops. It is forever doomed to spend its life trapped in a blue sign, unable to escape to the Real Sky beyond.
