Tageri (lapwing) have long legs like that, and also have special head/neck feathers.

Clive good option, but I think the mouth is too long.
The truth is that I have enough time looking for a bird of the Japanese coast like it. And I also think that it is corlito. It is very common, as is to say, find scenes of these birds flying over the sea.
Although I have also found this other bird of the Japanese coast that seems enough. I have relied on the details of the head, and the similarity with short beak and tail.

Yeah.. I think the long legs would rule out my earlier suggestion.. Lapwing would work.. but the crested ones aren't really associated with the sea and waves.. more stillwaters and uplands.

If we decide on a plover.. how about the Long Billed Plover.. it's fairly common in throughout Japan, has a slightly bigger bill than other plovers and the dark capped head could be represented in the carving as the cresty bit.. :idea: :D

Alan, the murrelet looks good, apart from the webbed feet...?

Alan, I also think the murrelet is the bird that most resembles, although the chances of it being a plover not a murrelet are very high for the number of representations of this scene that exist in the Japanese culture.
Piers had not noticed that detail of the feet. But I've taken a couple of photographs where appreciate more, and the truth is that if that could be a webbed feet refolding.
