I like this action shot of Little Black Cormorants. I took it recently in the local river baths, where these delightful little birds sometimes choose to play…

Enjoy!

The Day of the Cormorants

Little Black Cormorants

This morning, Ron, Chicki and I visited our local park. The sun, which had been shining brightly early on, was by now disappearing behind rather threatening-looking clouds. The heavy rain, though, did not eventuate.

On my way down the hill to the baths, I spotted an unusual sight. Dozens of Little Black Cormorants had perched on the wire atop the net. I counted twenty-four in a row, but that was just the start…

Quite often I see these birds in small numbers, but today’s display was exceptional. That’s why I’ve dubbed it ‘The Day of The Cormorants.’

I’m Looking at You…

I’m looking at you…

So thinks this Little Black Cormorant.

Despite their reputation for liking rocks, I rarely see them there. They seem to prefer to swim, dive, fly, or perch on the top of the shark-proof net.

So this is a rare photograph in  my collection.

Enjoy!
