I love cormorants. I love the breeding season. Love love love.
Earlier this week, I was at Balyang. I was watching some of the birds being fed and noticed something different.
Some of the adults were standing a little bit away from the nest and encouraging the chicks to jump up onto a high branch in order to get fed. I only saw it a couple of times – but am definitely hoping to see it again!
I wonder if other species do this?
