A pair of nesting Brandt’s Cormorants and their chicks. The last photo shows the parents’ unique feeding style. The image before that is of the chick coaxing the parent for food. The nestlings peck at the parent’s bill and pouch to get fed. The parents then regurgitate food for them … looking as if they’re swallowing their babies whole in the process. 🙂

[Photographed safely from a respectful distance w/tele lens.]
