Snowy Plover

Snowy Plover (小環頸鴴)
Japan (1994)
27th November, 2007. Futami, Mie

This located stamp issued by Mie Prefecture to show the famous sight Meoto Iwa in Futami, Ise. Which are two rocks in the middle of sea, according to Wikipedia, the large rock is man and small one is his wife. I don't have any idea why the design of the stamp have three birds, those birds are Snowy Plover, it is migratory bird living in northern earth and fly over to southern in winter.
