2021 Late Winter Trip #3

White-tailed Eagle

The 2nd day of our trip was very sunny and although there were quite a few interesting birds I couldn’t get many good photos. We stayed around the coast between Yufutsu and Mukawa. Stuff around included White-tailed and Steller’s Sea Eagle, Japanese Crane, and various common winter ducks and gulls.

Unlike around Hakodate, there didn’t seem to be many winter passerines except for several flocks of Eurasian Siskin.

There were groups of Whooper Swan and a few geese flying around: both Taiga Bean and Greater White-fronted.
