To my delight, we actually have TWO young cormorants here on the lake -- one a juvie and the other getting closer to being a mature adult, but not quite there yet.... The two of them stood companionably together on a submerged log for quite some time as I happily fired away from my deck, handholding the 100-400mm:

Down Under spring is starting and trees are in blossom. In many parts of the country the drought has broken. The huge fires have left their mark but elsewhere there's new growth and there's a boom in small birds in my valley.

Indeed I am! :). Was a Nikon user for many, many years and only this past November 2019 made the big leap to Sony all the way with the A7R IV and some lenses. I'm still hanging out at Nikon Cafe, though, as it's always beenl kind of "home" for me.
In both camp you are a very good photographer.
Nice to follow you and your work.:clapping:

This Egret saw me, took off, did a full orbit of me and landed back where he started. I got some panning practice.

One of the grabs I (still) regret not doing (many opportunities) was a bird...a dead one...in fact it was a dead Meadowlark, legs still curled around a wire...but was in film days and hunting season, so never gave it a thought, until, of course, too late...so now everytime I see good small-bird pics I get antsy...
+1; the bird shot!
