Great Cormorant Flying Over Kin Town, Okinawa
There won't be a review of this new lens until it's been fully evaluated.
Lately, I've been backpacking the monster each morning, as I do my 10,000 daily steps.
Plenty of ducks migrate to Okinawa for winter. They were sort of avoiding me today.
All of a sudden, two strange-looking birds flew overhead and I wasn't sure what they were.
Here's a favorite image of one I used to get an identification. I'm not exactly a bird expert.
So, I wind up jumping through all sorts of Internet hoops, to get you this information.
English Name: Great Cormorant
Scientific Name: Phalacrocorax carbo
Japanese Name: Kawa-u (カワウ)
More of these birds may be seen in this 2012 post from the other side of this island.
