sunning, reed cormorants

We saw quite a lot of these birds at the Malachite Bird Hide.  The way they lift their wings up and away from their bodies makes me think that they are  (a) a little overheated (you know, like we humans will lift up our arms to increase airflow), or (b) they do it so that their feathers dry off quicker after a dip in the lake.
