Two Blue-winged Teal Crash The Cormorant Fishing Party
Once there were 11 cormorant gathered, they all started swimming together. They were herding fish out of the wide bay and into the mouth of a narrow creek that feeds into the bay. Some of the cormorants had the white breeding plumes on the side of their head. A couple of blue-winged teal decided to join the fishing party and swam along with them. It was a fascinating sight, all of them swimming with purpose and in a cohesive group.
