ooh ooh

Recently I've seen this cormorant in our river.

In Japanese it is called an u (pronounced "ooh").

If you're interested, check out my video here.

The first second or so you will see a huge white koi (carp). Then the cormorant will look like a black duck only it will stay underwater for quite some time.

It isn't the best quality, I shot it with my iPhone and there was no way to zoom-in (well if there is I don't know how to).

Enjoy!

I am not familiar with cormorant but it certainly seems to be enjoying itself in the water. ;-)

Very cool! The video isn't bad, at all. Thanks for sharing with us. :)

It wasn't too long ago on tv that I saw a nature video of japanese fishermen using cormorants to catch fish. Totally cool. Sigh...if only my dogs could find truffles....

Rowena, yup I think there are "shows" you can see during the summer months out on rivers, where you can watch the cormorants fish. Guess you gotta train your "kids" to find the truffles :)

Take care.
