Double-crested Cormorant Goes Fishing

I watched this Double-crested Cormorant surface with fish, one after another, for 30 minutes.

It became a fun challenge, anticipating where s/he’d pop up with a possible fish.

And there were a lot of fish, I’d never seen a cormorant catch so many so quickly.

I missed many of them either completely or out-of-focus, but here’s four of the cormorant’s nice catches and my lucky shots.

Cormorants can be flashy with their toss & flip to swallow the fish, but this one would just do a quick gulp.

No time for dramatics, there were more fish to be had!

As much as I tried, here’s the only sequence I lucked out on with that quick gulp.

That belly had to be quite full!  😉
