This is the first time I’ve seen a cormorant this far up the Alsea River. I know he’s here for the food but I wonder if there is a certain type of fish he’s followed up the river? Chinook are too big even for a cormorant. Double-crested cormorants are the most plentiful here so that’s probably what he is.
Although I was sad to see this pretty little Kingfisher was dying, I was excited to see one up close.
He didn’t suffer very long after I saw him. I don’t know how long he’d been hurt though. I didn’t do an autopsy to find out what caused his demise.
What a beautiful bird!
Suspicious and Guilty were chasing each other around this morning. Maybe we’ll have rabbit for Thanksgiving this year?! hahaha – just KIDDING!
I’m going to dye them pastel colors and send them to the grandkids for Christmas presents. 🙂
