Something you ought to know about the Shima-enaga birds is that they don’t like cold areas. In order to prepare for the colder season, they require access to food that is rich in energy.

They typically reach a size of roughly 13-15 cm in adulthood and weigh up to 9 grams. They live in large flocks as they have attuned themselves to living a communal life. Chances are you will most probably see them sitting in large groups of fluffy cotton candy cuteness!
