A photographic record (with accompanying comments) of the natural world at the Annapolis Royal Marsh, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia
Sunday, June 19, 2011
This shot wasn't taken at the marsh, but nearby from the perimeter trail that borders the Annapolis River. It was low tide, and I noticed a row of black spots out near the causeway. Upon a closer look I realized it was a row of cormorants, with a couple of sea gulls thrown in. I get a kick out of watching these awkward birds, although they're not everyone's favorite. There used to be more of them at the marsh when there were more loafing bars and snags to perch on.
