Pelagic Cormorant

Pelagic Cormorant

We were back in the same port one week later and most of the birds from last week were still around including this tame Pelagic Cormorant. This is the smallest of the 3 common cormorant species in Japan.

Most interesting bird was an offshore White-billed Diver which was too far away for a photo. At Yakumo there were lots of Bewick’s and Whooper Swan, a flock of White-fronted Geese and a few Bean Geese too.
