In the creek behind our house we have over 40 types of birds that come to visit. A number of them fish in the creek. This Pied Cormorant caught a fish which he then attempted, for ten minutes, to swallow – but couldn’t as it was too large. He finally flew away leaving the other birds to devour it. There are no winners when one’s ambition is too great.
