This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

角島, Tsunoshima 5

The last post of this day, the last birds of Tsunoshima and that little harbor across.

ミウ,  Temminck's Cormorant


From a distance they look so much like the Great Cormorant that we get in Fukuoka.
Today I could distinguish them by the shape of the base of the bill quite well.

below  オオハム, Black-throated Loon

and シロエリオオハム,  Pacific Loon

A familiar fishing harbor sight
