Cormorants

#Birding, #Nature, #Photography

Being out in nature on a regular basis tends to make you more observant; more aware of your surroundings. All the birds I saw flying overhead before looked the same, but not any more. I am now able to distinguish shapes of wings and sounds.

I remember seeing these birds for the first time and wondered what they were. The people I met along the trail, would enlighten me about the Cormorants and their habits.

Most people speak of these birds with disdain, and I would soon see the reason why. As my hubby and I wandered along the paths, we would spot trees that were clean of any leaves, and looked as though they were about to die, we were told, that it was the doing of the Cormorants.

Apparently there is something in the droppings of the Cormorants, and it will kill the trees. This tree still had a few leaves  on it at the time the picture was taken, but I’m sure it will probably remain bare this year.

  1. I’m not sure if cormorants are a regular around here, but I think we had some visiting our little lake by the house a month or so ago. I’d never seen one, but that was the first thought that came to mind when I saw these here.Interesting bird. Maybe they were just passing through.
