Those tall birds along the river — 5 Comments

  1. Where I live a species called the Double Crested Cormorant is common, but I think the birds in your picture are a different species.

    I’ve heard that in some Asian cultures cormorants are (or were) used for fishing. A ring is placed around the bird’s neck, so it can’t swallow an entire fish, and then the fisherman sends it out into the water. It returns with a fish, and is rewarded with a small piece of fish that will fit through the constricted throat.
