Cormorant, Chilka Lake

Chilka Lake which is around 55 kms from Puri is home for many birds. On my visit to this place in the off season I spotted few birds. One of them is Cormorant.



They were right in the middle of lake sitting on few wooden poles.



I guess they were targeting some of the fishes that they could catch for the meal.

Great pictures Rajesh. They look like they could fall off at any minute.

Beautiful Rajesh...I especially like the photo of the 'full view' of the bamboo and the cormorant.

We have these in Florida. We also have anhingas, which are very similar. Great fun to watch but I can't tell them apart.

How cool to see them sitting on poles like that!

I love your hopeful cormorants opportunistically waiting for a lazy fish dinner - do they call that fast food?!

The landscape and cormorants make for a beautiful shot. Not something we here every day in the US. Nicely done.

Gordon said...

That is a great shot where they are all sat on the poles, very good.
All the best Gordon.

Great photos of the Cormorants.

Such cool birds, their perches don't look very comfortable but I guess they are hoping not to be there very long.

I know they're fishing, but they look as if they're guarding the water...like soldiers in a row.

Huldra said...
