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.

Tufted Ducks and Mergansers

 Often seen in the river, on windy days sometimes in the harbor basin:

Red-breasted Merganser,  ウミアイサ

Late afternoon their red eyes seem brighter than ever

Seemingly such a slim bird, but.... There’s a big white belly below the surface.  大きな白い腹

below  Tufted Duck,  キンクロハジロ Male and female in Muromi River.
