Sunday, March 5, 2017, 3:41 PM – As our canoe progressed through the tight foliage of The Narrows (brown trail), we came upon a comical scene. A goofy Cormorant sad mid-stream on a stump, heaving and coughing. As we watched, he puked a large fish out of his mouth and it splashed into the water. Being free of his tracheal obstruction, he flew off over our heads, leaving the floating dead fish in the water for us to pass.

I once watched a blue heron struggle to swallow and then spit out a fish too large to swallow. I got a ringside seat from our lanai on the lake, and it was very amusing! 🙂 Love your photos, William! ❤
