Wings in the Wind

meadowbrook-cormorant

Some days I’m grateful for the ordinary — a steaming bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, no urgent messages or calls all day, an average number of tasks accomplished, one ingrown nail clipped from a fractious kitty’s paw.  Some days that’s enough.

What’s ordinary for a cormorant?  How many miles does he fly?  How many fish does he eat?  How many times does he pause on a log and spread his wings to dry?

  1. That’s a lovely photo, Louise. Another question. Why don’t other water birds dry their wings in this manner? Why only cormorants?
