          1. The links bar near the top becomes un-arrangeable regarding the little house icon. It can’t be changed. Must be my particular installation. I can’t give more detail as I don’t fully understand what the heck the problem is…

  1. I am SO glad that you posted this great shot today! A few years ago, when I first noticed these birds in flight, I mistook them for migrating Great Northern Loon – and shortly afterward, repeatedly heard them referred to as an Invasive Species – so I was all ready to go off on a tangent about what a mess another invasive is making of things, only to discover that they are in fact NOT invasive, but merely recovering ground after almost being exterminated back in the DDT & super-pollution days of the Great Lakes that had also threatened Osprey and the other top-of-the-food-chain fish-eating birds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-crested_Cormorant
    Like most species with an over-abundance of food, their populations have rebounded spectacularly. Turns out that they are making good use of (other true invasives) the Round Gobi and Zebra Mussels; so good on them then, eh? You GO Cormorants!

    1. Yes! You GO Cormorants! I know some consider them invasive … like some guy out in Millidgeville here, who used them as target practice. Reading about that in the news made me very sad. It’s such a delight to see them returning in April to the Reversing Falls. With the incoming tide, there’s plenty of fish to be had. They, of course, have a full grasp of the rhythm of the tides, so they rest on the three little islands, midstream, until it comes back in again.
      I’ve used them for target practicing too, but only for my camera 🙂
      And YES, I can think of one, very invasive species 😉
