Heavily cropped; love the colour of the head!

Nice. Well done, 7DmkI.

Thanks Talys, not as sharp as I'd prefer but you know how it goes.  Being cloudy/snowing I didn't have the best lighting but I wanted the fluffy snow in the picture.

Thanks, Jack.  Getting a bit warmer in Toronto now; days are longer and winter blue starts to fade  ;)

I saw this odd bird coming towards me this afternoon, and caught it as it went overhead. It's cormorant with a huge bulge in its neck. Do you think it's eaten something rather more than it can swallow?

That looks like a very full crop.

I wish I had seen it catching what it had eaten and shot it in the act!

Hi Alan - May be that's what it caught!

Thanks guys for the likes.

Yes it is truly amazing; once I counted a waxwing downing over a dozen mountain ash berries one after another.  The way the feathers fluff they just look super stocky after that.  I later observed them regurgitating the skins.
