DC Cormorant

I wondered about this Double Crested Cormorant. It is unusual to see cormorants sleeping in the daylight. It was about 5:00 pm. On my return walk, he was up and about diving for fish.

A sleepy fellow for sure but it was just a catnap by the sounds of it. :) Excellent shots Steve.

One advantage of it snoozing was it allowed you to get close, great shots.

Yes, just a cat nap. Black colored birds are rather interesting. You can pick up a blue-green color on his back feathers between his wings. I've seen thousands of birds rest like this. They like to tuck their bills under a wing. I'll have to keep this in mind the next time I get a stiff neck from falling asleep on the couch.
