These photos were taken at Trojan pond this summer. At first I thought this was a duck. It does look a little like one in the small viewfinder on my camera LOL . However as I prepared to post these pictures for sale, I realized that it was a type of bird I was unfamiliar with.
It took me quite a bit of time to figure out what it was. I tried looking up all sort of different waterfowl on wikipedia with no luck. Finally I decided to check out the website for the Audubon society, which led me to the web page of their Lincoln City, Oregon chapter where there was a section on birds that are likely to bee seen in Oregon. When I was the image of double crested cormorants there, I thought that might be what I had photographed. After looking them up on Wikipedia to see more photos, I was sure.
I love how wistful this double crested cormorant looks standing all alone on the log above his reflection. He seems to be pondering his lonesomeness and looking for a friend as he gazes into the distance. In reality, if you zoom in close, he appears to be munching on something 😉 . Perhaps this is just his favorite fishing spot.
