BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WEEKLY ~ 17

Little Pied Cormorant, Microcarbo
melanoleucos in the Great Australian Bight.



Pelicans and Cormorants on depth indicators on a
part-time lake and sometimes pasture. Such are the
vagueries of weather!



Please enlarge, it is better than it looks here.

  4. I've never seen one of these beauties before... they look so much better that our dark ones.

    My postings today show my son: Sam The Roofer and a very nice Moorland View and Poem

  5. Nice photos! I especially like the 2nd one with the birds perching on what looks to be old farm machinery.

  7. That plow looks like it hasn't been used in a while. Or at least may not ever work again. Great capture Arija. You must be getting some rain finally.

  8. The birds on the wheels in the pasture are almost funny. I wonder what they are thinking, if birds think?

    Thank you very much for visiting my birds blog and for the comment you left me there.

  9. I've never seen the pied. We just have the common black ones and they've become an invasive species. Great photography!

  11. Neat, we have cormorants and pelicans here too, but they are so different! Your cormorant especially, what a looker.

  12. You're right, very different from the pelagic cormorant. I didn't know there were any in the family that looked like this. Great photos!
