A Nesting Cormorant

This is a Brandt's Cormorant or Phalacrocorax penicillatus nesting on the California coast. They prefer rocky outcroppings and I am sure they lose more than a few eggs from their precarious perches. Surprisingly, they make very little noise even in large numbers. They seem perfectly suited to live right next to one of the busiest streets in La Jolla.
