Not as busy on the bridge................


We were back in Yakumo on Monday...................


The big bridge that had been so productive for eagle shots was a little quieter................

Fewer eagles further away and they weren't doing much.


And hardly any BIFs even, just this individual..............


I crossed the bridge to the other side  and there was a bit more action. The nearest thing we have to drift ice in south Hokkaido...............




These pics are a bit cropped as I didn't have the teleconverter on for these shots, I left it off in anticipation of some closer eagle action.

The Stellers are quicker eaters than the White-taileds, it really wolfed the salmon down...........







The Smew were still around too.

  1. Maybe not quite as busy, but a great day nonetheless. I can't think of a birder anywhere in the world who wouldn't have loved to have shared the experience with you.

    1. Thanks David, I do get a bit spoiled by the eagles in this brief window, I think last weekend's photos will be the last this winter though.............
