We went around March and there were some cranes there. They're pretty far from where you stand but you could still spot them pretty well. There were also heaps of noisy swans tho. Haha! The cafe acros...
Tsurumi, Hokkaido, Kushiro.
In advance, just check how to get to Tsurumi, because there are many places to shoot in Kushiro, the famous Baoding Dinghe Nature Park, Akan International Crane Center and so on.
There are more old masters in the International Crane Center, and the equipment is professional. However, Tsurumi said that from the morning I saw the situation, there are not many people, relatively clean, plus less than one hour of public transportation, it is very convenient (in front of Kushiro Station, take the crane line You can go).
Then, shooting in Hokkaido in winter, keeping the camera warm, keeping the battery warm... Then take the red-crowned crane, or 600 fixed focus... otherwise it is a bit painful...
In short, I will come again .
There are fifteen species of cranes in the Tsurumi to see the red-crowned cranes
the world. There are three kinds of cranes in Japan, and only the red-crowned cranes breed. They are concentrated in the eastern part of Hokkaido. Because of the lack of food in winter, they are artificially feeding in Heju Village from November to March of the following year. During this period, they have the opportunity to see wild red-crowned cranes. There are three choices for watching cranes: Tsurumi-Tai, Toba-bashi, and Tsurui-Ito-Dragon-Crane Center. The Yinyu Bridge had to pass before sunrise, and the center of the Ito Danding Crane was far away. Finally, Tsurumi Station was chosen.
When you get off the bus, you will see a lot of cranes! Although everyone was very excited, they remained quiet and were afraid of disturbing these birds. The distance is still a little far away. If you use telephoto, you can make it very clear, or you can take a telescope. The crane spends most of its time eating food, occasionally flying, and the posture is beautiful. I didnt pay attention when I took the photo. Later I saw that some of them were chicks, and there was no red color on the top of the head~
