Ostia Lido – Birds on the Rock Reef

I was accustomed to see pigeons, crows and of course seagulls on the beach but this year I have found a new species.

They actually are always on the rocks or flying very close to the sea.

I think they are some kind of herons and I find them so beautiful.

I have spent hours contemplating them, the same way they contemplate the sea.

It is a show within the show.

Hypnotic!

  1. I agree cormorants, but I am also not a bird expert. I at first thought, I doubt those birds are comtemplating anything other than food – but then I thought – I have no idea, they could be super deep, lol!!!!

    1. Thank you David and Laura. I don’t know, I was thinking of food as well but at the very beginning! They stood there for hours without moving, I would say they were just relaxing and chilling๐Ÿค”

  2. Wonderfully soothing photos – and they are cormorants. I love it when they sit spreading their wings to dry. Like statues.
