Default Cormorant fishing

Out on the golf course again and captured this cormorant trying to eat a catfish it just caught. It had to flip it around several times to get it to the correct position to swallow. Kr, DAL 55-300

Nice catch for you and the Cormorant!

Hans, nice captures of the bird doing what it does best. That golf course of yours is a great birding spot.

Nice one. I'll have to look closer on my computer when I get home.

I hope he has a tough throat. Those things are prickly.

Yes, on the computer you can see that "sharp" parts. Couldn't see those on the phone, but knew they were there. Yikes!

Always fascinating to see how birds live. That fish looks too large to go down its throat, but they seem to manage it.
