Several different grebes and a loon?
Place: Yoichi River (emptys into the sea), Yoichi, Hokkaido, Japan
Weather Cloudy, 3 C
I was not sure if possible to ID from the photos,
any help is great appreciated.
The shape suggests grebes but I may be wrong.
One birds neck was long with white running up it ,
yet the head was completely black,
not half upwards at the eye...
Which I thought that one bird might be a Pacific Loon,
versus a great crested grebe or something.
The majority are small and seem like grebes.
Any clues, or something that still defines the bird
given the poor quality of the photo?
600 mm at ~198 meter (650 ft) distance to the birds.
Thanks! Jeff :D
addition of the possible loon photo I forgot
Forgot the pic I was referring to in my post above!
Probably all Little Grebes.
Ditto to Little Grebes, the yellow-eyed east Asian subspecies T. r. poggei :t:
Steve and Nutcracker,
Thank you both so much for your input!
yes, got the poggei subspecies:wink:
That day saw the Great-crested Grebe,
as well as Goldeneyes, Gadwalls, Eurasian Teals,
Red-breasted Mergansers, Harlequins, Mallards,
and even a male and female Smew!
A good day for ducks.....
With the virus here it was kind of a duck and cover mission....
