Welcome, Visiting Birds.

This morning I saw a cormorant beside the lake. They don't come here very often. I think they stop at the lake to catch some fish on their way to seasonal quarters. 

Yesterday I saw an osprey flying over the lake. I watched him dive for fish a few times. 

A hummingbird occasionally visits my feeder, his little wings beating furiously.

  1. Hello,
    Great shots of the Cormorant and the Hummer. I love watching the Osprey, Great photos. Take care, have a happy day!

  2. I hope that anglers let the cormorants and ospreys have their share of fish.

  3. ...I have yet to see a hummingbird!

  4. Wonderful timing with that hummer.

  5. It's always fun to see Osprey, and Cormorants their own ways!

  6. great shot of the hummingbird.

  7. Well done Linda, you captured super shots here. Love your little hummingbird, adorable it is 💛

  8. Those cormorants are probably heading to Oregon for the summer; we have tons of them here and in Florida in the winter (I'm pretty sure they arent the same ones). Beautiful picture of the hummer!

  9. What awesome birds! I had a cormorant try to 'fish' in my fish pond a few years back!
    Ospreys are rather elegant in the air and hummingbirds are always fun to watch. How lucky that they visit your garden :)

    Thanks for being part of 'My Corner of the World' this week!
