Cormorants Watching

From a distance, they look like crows, sitting patiently on the poles , waiting for the fish to surface.
The cormorants have other competitors like the storks and the egrets, all waiting for a juicy morsel.
However, the cormorants are the smartest anglers. I have seen one bird catch and swallow a fish bigger than itself, in a smooth operation.
This is my contribution to this week's Our World Tuesday and World Bird Wednesday.

  6. They are always so interesting to watch, all lined up. My husband photographed a line of them on the mooring line of a military ship, and was nearly arrested because he was too close to the ship! Great photos of those patiently waiting birds!
