Another Cormorant Encounter

I returned to Cochran Shoals today and took an early afternoon stroll along the Chattahoochee River.  I was hoping to see my Cormorant friends – the creepy (yet cool) creatures I encountered on my last visit – and I was not disappointed.

Turns out they were perched exactly where I left them…about a mile and a half down the trail, in the same tree as before.

And guess what?  Yep!  They were still pooping!  Not to be gross, but I happened to snap this picture right as one was raising its rear to begin that very process.

The sun was extremely bright, so most of the pictures turned out as silhouttes.

I’m afraid to ask what it says about me, but I find these strange birds captivating.
