Yersinia pseudotuberculosis was isolated from three specimens of two species of birds, the black-faced bunting (Emberiza spodocephala) and pied wagtail (Motacilla alba), of 528 specimens of birds examined from coastal regions in Japan. The two isolated strains of Y. pseudotuberculosis were identified as serovar 4b and serovar 3. This is the first isolation of Y. pseudotuberculosis from birds in Japan. Yersinia enterocolitica was isolated from three specimens of the pied wagtail, one specimen of the reed bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus) and one specimen of the rustic bunting (Emberiza rustica). Yersinia frederiksenii was isolated from two specimens of the gray-rumped sandpiper (Heteroscelus brevipes). Yersinia intermedia was isolated from one specimen of the pied wagtail.
