Coming in for a landing

Post by Matt Quinn » Sun Aug 06, 2017 4:59 pm

I was shooting a running stream when these appeared above me. I don't know what they are, but I couldn't resist raising my camera.

I'm not a birder but if I had to take a guess I'd say they are Cormorants. They're cool birds and fun to watch! S-

Probably right. A lot of them around here but I usually see them low and from the side. Thanks. Matt

I agree with Steve that they're probably cormorants, birds I do love to photograph, especially if I can catch up up close. Their colors are subtle but beautiful, and their eyes are downright weird.
