It's time for another episode of Rat TV! This time we're going to focus on one of my favorite water birds, the cormorant. I did this video early in the fall, so you'll notice a lot of green on the trees. I must warn you this time that the surprise I mention in the title is a little rude. If you don't want to know what it is then don't watch the video. And if you blink you might miss it.
As soon as you play this, you'll understand why it took me so long to show you this video, or any videos for that matter. I did this video in extreme shaky cam mode. I still think I captured something unique though. You're not going to find anything quite like this anywhere else. I hope you enjoy it, there is much more Rat TV to come.
I have to say that the event in this video solved a mystery for me. I was wondering why the fish were jumping out of the water right next to the perching cormorants. They were making such loud splashes that they would surprise those poor birds at times. I think you can guess my surprise when I found out it wasn't fish that were splashing so close to these big birds. Just watch the video, and tell me your reaction.
