My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Oh I ADORE cormorants! There is a big high electricity pylon near here where they often sit. We love them, but most people don’t like cormorants for some reason. I think they are amazing

    Great shots Judy, in Asia they tie a long string around the neck and use them as fisherman. Once they catch the fish the cormorant is hauled back in to retrieve the fish before he can swallow it.

    When the herons were so numerous at Dana Point, there was one tree that seemed to be a hangout for cormorants. I believe I took a few photos at the time, but they tend to just sit there, and aren’t as interesting to watch as the herons. The first thing I ever learned about cormorants was, as CalmKate mentioned, the Asians prevent them from swallowing the fish they catch — we learned that they place a ring around the bird’s neck — I like the idea of a string that they can use to reel in the bird/fish — interesting symbiosis!
