It's raining Spoonbills.......



Amazingly, a different Spoonbill appeared on Thursday............the third of the week.


It was another Eurasian Spoonbill, the bill is different from the one earlier in the week, it's pinkish which I think means an immature.



The light was much better than a couple of days ago. When we arrived it must have just flown in off the sea and it was being mobbed by a crow.

It flew off anyway, I could just fire off a few shots before it disppeared over the horizon..........

It does look comical with its mouth open.





It came back about an hour later...................










The poor thing must have been exhausted and just stood around as the light faded............






I wonder how many other spoonbills have been turnig up in Hokkaido?

  2. Blackish wingtips are a good sign of an immature....I think the bill darkness is variable. Nice shots.
