Photography of Birds – Set # 28
Set # 28
The Double-crested Cormorants are excellent flyers, once they get their wings dry. Its feathers, like those of all cormorants, are not waterproof and it must spend time drying them out after spending time in the water.
While I was walking through a park in Lima (Peru), I saw this bunch of House Sparrows, sitting under a tree’s shade, it was noon, and the Summer sun was up, the temperature made it feel like being in an oven, hot and very humid too! I felt sorry for the birds!
Excellent details on the cormorant’s wings!
Thank you so much, Indira. 🙂
I remember the first time that I saw a cormorant, drying its wings and was asking people, “What is that bird?” I found it fascinating. I am glad you have given room for the house Sparrows. I watched a pair take over a bird house and found new respect for them, both were very industrious, feeding their young.
I do not disregard any birds, some may be prettier than others, but they all, are equally birds. Thanks, Jane. 🙂
Un meravigliosovolo, tutto da godere!
Grazie mille, cara Silvia. 🙂
