Photographer Yoshinori Mizutani has also looked to these highly perched birds for a photographic series titled Kawau.

The black and white photographs use minimalist compositions to capture the birds that have perched along Tokyo’s Tama River.

“The sight of big flocks of birds perching on electric wires and flying above your head is eerie, visually shocking and at the same time breath-taking,” said the photographer.

He says that the Kawau birds have recently exploded in population in Japan, altering the local ecosystem.
