Default Cormorant Feeding

This is really some in depth feeding. Wakodahatchee Wetlands from last Friday. The photos tell it all!

Really great capture, Ed!
You don't get to witness something like that very often, let alone photograph it.
Great job.

That is a great series. And here I thought we humans were the only species that will do almost anything for our children!

What a great series - excellent captures on a difficult subject, and excellent documentation of the behavior too!

This is indeed good documentation - particularly since both these birds are breeding adults. Judging from the wear on the tail feathers of the bird on the right, she is the female which has been sitting on the nest to the extreme lower right - the other bird is the male who is bringing food to the female. This serves two purposes - it provisions the female, and serves to reinforce the pair bond. The young would be fed in similar fashion, since cormorants (and their relatives the pelicans) carry fish in their crops and do not regurgitate. Nice job, Ed.
