This Bird is Mejiro, which is a Japanese White-eye.

I have thought this bird is Uguisu, which is Japanese Bush Warbler till check with Wikipedia.

Many of Japanese confused Mejiro and Uguisu.

Because Japanese called Uguisu-Iro, which is the name of color, is same as Mejiro feather color.

The Japanese White-eye starts singing from early spring on or by the plum trees.
