JULY 2005: Rest
Talking about fishing…. Black cormorants are quite common in Pampulha. Their preys are the fish that are found in the artificial lake. Even when the lake is heavily polluted, with even more waste material than algae, these birds continued to fish around. They manage to express their patience; they are much more patient than fishermen. After having caught their prey, they take a long rest, in order to digest their meal. Meanwhile, polish and clean their large wings, and appear to enjoy the warmth of the winter sun when they spread their wings.
