Mika, That Cormorant kept diving head first beneath the water with the fish in it's mouth and then re-surfacing. They do dive underwater to catch their prey and I wondered if it was getting more water in it's mouth to aid in swallowing or perhaps it was positioning itself for a better angle to swallow that fish. It sure is interesting to watch birds like the Cormorant (and also Herons and Egrets) swallow those big fish, especially when their necks look so skinny!

I always thought that vultures and buzzards were the same things, but after looking it up, a buzzard is more related to a hawk. They eat live prey, and their heads are feathered.
Vultures, on the other hand, primarily eat carrion and have a bald head. And they're not that cute.
