The Whole Truth About Cormorants

If you read my recent post about “My” Friends, the Cormorants, I am sure I was clear how large and terrifying these birds are and had great respect for the guy who bravely grappled it to the ground and shoved it out of the boat (me!).  I even remember at the time telling everyone I had that old movie creature “Rodan” in my boat.  (You might have to be over 50 to remember Rodan, but it single handedly terrorized the entire country of Japan).  I was pretty proud of my heroism.  However, my two daughters saw it differently. 
In response to my blog Dina posted, “They look small in the picture Dad, not sure what the big deal was.”
Her sister Carla piped in, “Not too big of a bird from the looks of it Pops.”
So, to clear the air, I found two photos that put the size of the bird in proper scale from my perspective.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
