Other water birds

Other water birds

In addition to the well-known water birds, on this post a collection of the other water birds.


The Cormorant is a fairly large bird, which stands still for a long time on something standing in the water; this can be a board, but also a stump of wood.  Spritual: It has a “down to earth” mentality.
To dry themselves or to warm themselves, they sit on staff with their wings spread.
When hunting for food, they can dive to a depth of 30 m and remain submerged for 2 minutes.

A Grebe often carries its young on its back; Unfortunately I’ve never seen it until now. 20the january 2022.

“Properties” Elegance. melancholy, expression of deep feelings through dance.

They can stay under water for a long time: it looks like they are playing hide and seek with their little ones.

On the righ there is a little story in Amsterdam; Beatrixpark.

Today, on the 23th July 2022 I saw a Grebe with a young one on his back: Awesome. Lingewaard.

Unfortunately no camera.

The coot has such nice feet: as if it were all made up of pieces. It is a protected native bird species. It doesn’f mind to fight with others, when they come in his area: almost like people 😉


The moorhen: It looks a bit like the Coot, but is easier to others.

I saw the once on the left  near the Castle Doorwerth working in august 2022.

Oystercatcher; I had never heard of this bird until I saw an unknown water bird in the Lower Rhine. Thanks to Google I found the name with the bird.
Sturdy wader with a long orange-red bill and pink legs. In flight with prominent white wing stripes and black and white tail. The beak changes according to the type of food.

And don’t forget: the seagulls. In different shapes and sizes.

Originally only seen on the coast, they are increasingly coming to populated areas. Some seagulls become a “pest” in the city because they open garbage bags. But who puts those garbage bags on the street?

But in the water they’ll find food wat’s better for them;      https://youtu.be/Q6rmMJm6-gw
