A Double-crested Cormorant With A Mouthful

This Double-crested Cormorant was at the Charleston City Lake here in Arkansas. Several of them moved up close to the dam and were catching fish with just about every dive. I park next to the boat ramp and dock and I’m photographing from my vehicle so these birds are close. I was able to photograph them for two mornings catching fish in this place. I went back yesterday morning but it was windy and cold and they were not up by the dam. I will be heading back this morning with my fingers crossed that they will be active.

    What a sight! Awesome photograph, Steve! I’m always surprised that they can get such large fish down their throats.
