A Good Feeding Spot

Finding a good feeding spot makes for an entertaining time. Finding one yesterday made for a joyful morning. For me flying stuff fascinates me, gets my juices flowing. I miss a lot, catch a few. Birds are not so different from us when it comes to a fishing hot spot. Working as a fishing guide years ago, when I would be on the fish it was not long until other boats would be lining up to follow. The same held true for the birds in this location. Watching as an eagle caught one and headed back to the nest to feed its young. I missed that one. Terns both caspian and forster’s making round after round along with the gulls. Great Egrets, heron, cormorants and a snowy egret. What a difference in size between these two similar species the Great Egret and Snowy. Black Crowned Night heron as well were all surrounding the spot hoping to catch a meal.

The hot spot created by heavy current as the discharge from the dam is strong, forcing so many baitfish in to the eddies in this pocket downstream. A nice change, a challenge to capture the action. Gotta love it when it happens…

  1. That is quite a difference in size between the egrets. Nice shot getting them both together!
    Those are the first shots of cormorants I’ve seen on a blog this year.

      I enjoy when I get a chance to take size comparison shots. The cormorants are much more that just black birds if you get them in the light.
