Cormorants Waiting For Fish
Notes: The birds lined up in this picture are cormorants, a fish-eating
sea bird. At one time, they were used by various North American natives as
fishing tools. After tying long lines to the birds' feet and putting a small
hoop around the birds' neck, they would let the birds go get fish. Since the
birds couldn't swallow the fish, the natives would pull the birds in using the
lines to collect the fish and then release the cormorants again to get more.
