Time to Dry Off

In the local swimming baths near where we live, water birds are a common and delightful sight. One of the most frequently-seen birds is the Little Pied Cormorant.

Their method of feeding — diving for aquatic animals– necessitates their habit of spreading out their wings to dry.

These small shags sometimes flock with their slightly larger relatives, the Little Black Cormorants.

Interesting characters!

      Yes, they are quite pretty 🙂 Once in a while I see flocks of them. This is a real treat!

    Great shot and makes me think of our two turtles that come out of the water and sun themselves under the lamp we have for them and have their feet sticking out and up getting the benefit of the heat.

      Thanks for kudos, Odie!
      Love the idea of your turtles warming up 🙂 Have you done a post about them?

    I like his spread-eagle look. 🙂 Way to go, Margaret!

      Thank you, Uncle Tree. 🙂 I rarely miss the chance to take a photo of these birds in that pose.
