Today I went for a walk along the edge of King river. These photos were heavily cropped, the birds were way out in the middle. The Cormorant had caught his fish and the Pelican came in a tried to steal it, then the chase was on, this went on for about five minutes. Eventually the cormorant dropped the fish but a large gull came in to try and get his share, the pelican also kept coming, I’m unsure who ended up with the fish or if it got away.
