PIED CORMORANT

The common cormorant or shag
Lays eggs inside a paper bag.
The reason you will see no doubt
Is to keep the lightning out.
But what these unobservant birds
Have never noticed is that herds
Of wandering bears may come with buns
And steal the bags to hold their crumbs.

Taken at Trigg Island.

At a pool on the Nullagine River, at the limit of the camera.
