Birds in Inage

a huge raft of Greater Scaup (Suzugamoスズガモ) seen from Inage Kaihin Koen

4 male Wigeons (Hidorigamoヒドリガモ) foraging on the edge of the water

a male Wigeon and a sleepy female Tufted Duck (Kinkurohajiroキンクロハジロ)?

Coots (Oobanオオバン)

Great Crested Grebe (Kammuri-kaitsuburiカンムリカイツブリ) in winter plumage

this GC Grebe came very close to the concrete embankment where I was standing

I thought he/she were asleep (resting) but...

gradually, he /she was moving away from me as if stalking two Coot foraging by the concrete wave breakers in the same posture.

getting closer and..

closer and..

... isn't that a bit too close?!

The Coots didn't seem sure what to do with him/her.

After a bit of confusion, the Coots restarted foraging and the GC Grebe was still floating in the same posture near them.

a long Oriental Greenfinch (Kawarahiwaカワラヒワ) on the cable
