The sun bath of the cormorant after catching a fish has several reasons. On the one hand it will dry the water permeable plumage, which reduces the buoyancy and allows the bird to dive down to depths of 40 meters. On the other hand, the absorbed rays of the sun also warm-up the cold fish in the stomach of the cormorant and thus serve a better digestion.
