A Canvasback was at fishery port in Nemuro.

I went to Nosappu cape which was famous view point of sea birds from land.
I could find Pigeon Guillemot, Ancient Murrelet, Least Auklet, Spectacled Guilmot, Pelagic Cormorant, and Red-faced Cormorant and seals: Harbor Seal and Spotted Seal, but I couldn't take photos of them because it was so far.

In Onnemoto port, I found Rock Sandpiper but it was too far....


  1. Nice Canvasback, a good find.

    I've been to Nosappu a few times, it is always SO cold there.

  2. Another rarity!
    Didn't know that the Canvasback is also known as Snow Duck.

  3. Oh... I mistook the English name...
