Visit to Sumida Aquarium, Tokyo

It was very crowded the day we visited Sumida Aquarium, so I didn’t have the luxury of having enough room or time to take some of the pics I would have wanted to take, but some did turn out alright:

Robin in the Snow

A small flock of American Robins have stuck around for the winter. It seems odd to see Robins in the snow.
