Scene in Edmonds: Nice catch

ese photos from the Edmonds waterfront that I took last weekend. The bird is a Double-crested Cormorant. It dove under the water and came to the surface with a good sized fish that it then swallowed whole! I have more shots of wildlife from Edmonds and elsewhere on my Facebook webpage at:

  1. Good photos, Michael. I once saw a double-crested cormorant struggle unsuccessfully for over twenty minutes trying to swallow the same type of fish.


  2. Michael . . . great photos and loved the ones you linked us to in your Facebook stuff. Wondering what sort of fish this humongous guy was . . . looks like the cormorant got his Thanksgiving meal a bit early . . . and probably no more space for seconds, either.


  3. Amazing capture! So could she really manage to gulp down that big/spiky fish (a sculpin?) entirely okay?? If eaten, does the unlucky dinner get swallowed wriggling all the way as well?!
