I went over to the Cormorant area today and the weather was not cooperating so all of the backgrounds are grey. However, it seems that I got more feather definition because of this so there is a positive side to it all.

6Here's one more that I liked from a previous Cormorant shoot.This one will replace Mr. pee pee because I don't wish the file to get too large for download. If anyone wishes to see that photo you will need to find a Cormorant in a tree and thenwait for a few minutes. I guarantee that you will see it

#4 is very, very nice, Norm - my kind of shot. However, I've got to say that that last shot is really kind of gross :O

Thanks on the compliment, geoff. As for the urination shot, it was really one of the most interesting and amazing things that I have seen and I was tickled to have been able to witness it and actually have a visual record. It sounded like someone had tossed a bucket of water from the roof of a barn when it hit the ground. Gross, perhaps, if one is thinking only of the act itself, but more amazing than anything I've ever seen from a bird. I thought it was fantastic. What a magnificent, strange, prehistoric bird this is.

These are good Norm. I like the one of the 3 on the limb looking about. As for the last one, I agree with your observation. Definitely something you won't see everyday. They are an odd bird to say the least. Cheers....thekman.

Those are great shots Normcar. If you don't mind, where were they shot.
