Yuhutu cruising

I organized bird cruising in Yuhutu, Tomakomai.
Some Brünnich's Guillemots were seen.

These individuals were very near.
I saw some two-individual-flock of this species.
I don't know whether they are pair.
It is impossible to distinguish their sex.

I was surprised to see Spectacled Guillemot, two individuals were seen.
This species breeds in sea of Okhots and sea of Japan at sea side cliff habitat, but there is no habitat around here, so I've not hear they bleed around here.
I could take photo of flying.

And I was also surprised was Pigeon Guillemot, one individual went along with Spectacled Guillemot.

A lot of Least Auklets were seen in this cruising, but they were so shy to fly away as soon as I found.

I will organize this cruising next month, it expect more auks, shearwaters, and albatrosses.
