A Sense of Time and Space

During several times at the end of May I saw a group of Cormorants who were staying on the same log at precisely the same time.  Their sense of time was so strong. Cormorants knew for how long they would stay on the log and when it was time to leave.  That was so amazing!

Every Cormorant had its own way of leaving the log. Some were taking off right away, others like the bird in the photo above were jumping in the water while flaring their wings wide for balance.

The Cormorant is drying his wings.

This Cormorant decided to settle on the little log next to others. Not everyone wants to get into fight and lose.

One of the Cormorants made a deep sound that resembled the oinking pig.

Move over... Give me some room.

Observing, preening and resting.

It's time to go fishing.

Oops... Landing wasn't elegant but it was precise.

Generally, life is good!


  1. A trio synchronized as in a show directed to the millimeter.

  2. Se han hecho protagonista de unas buenas escenas.

    Es de admirar lo bien que las has captado.


  3. I imagine you crouched in the weeds to get these shots. Great work!

  4. Excelente reportaje. En algunas fotos parece que los cormorants están haciendo una coreografía.
    Un abrazo y cuidate.

  5. A good album with excellent photos and the explanation of the curious habits of the cormorants.
    Great work.
    Have a nice weekend.

  6. the observation of gregarious animals is often a source of pleasure and learning.
