West Seattle wildlife: Cormorants’ fish fight

December 26, 2013 at 1:23 pm | In Seen at sea, West Seattle news, Wildlife | 11 Comments

The photo (click for a larger view) is by Katheryne Martinez, who shared it on the WSB Facebook page, asking for help identifying what kind of fish the cormorants were fighting over. We seem to have a winning answer, “sculpin” – though opinions varied from there – but we wanted to share the photo here too. Katheryne caught the cormorants on camera near Don Armeni Boat Ramp.

  1. OMG the look on that fish’s face (if a fish can have a look) looks like it’s saying “help me”!
