A pair of Falcated Duck at Yakumo. This cropped, distant shot is the only halfway decent one I've managed of the male. I've seen several females/immatures/eclipse males up close but never a drake in breeding plumage. This is only a brief passage visitor in south Hokkaido, it would be nice if a few overwintered.
Thanks for clicking this link.......
What a nice bird! New for me. Great shot :)ReplyDelete
