Double-crested Cormorant

Another year-round resident of the Chesapeake Bay, this lone Double-crested Cormorant was minding his own business, diving for food when I spotted him.

And he immediately spotted me up on my balcony.

And unfortunately decided he was no longer comfortable with his surroundings.

Geez, what’s a bird got to do to have some privacy while dining!

Sorry about that Mr. C!   😦

  1. Lovely to live so close to the water that birds think they have dining company. I’m sure all of them don’t mind πŸ™‚ Great captures!

    • Some don’t mind, including our Osprey, they will fly right up close and by me to get a good look at me since I’m always looking at them eating on the platform. lol Tit for tat! πŸ™‚

      • Now I’m laughing! The Osprey’s here know perfectly well where I live too, they fly low above the garden and take a good look when I’m outside, and even fly past my office window looking straight at me. Sometimes I think they tipped their wings. lol

    • Thanks Jerry, I remember you discussing the plight and almost demise of the cormorants by humans up your way, was it on Lake Michigan? I think they are really neat and quirky too!
