2012-03-02 Cormorants at the La Jolla Cove

Pelagic Cormorant
Pelagic Cormorant near The Cove. La Jolla, California. San Diego County.

Three species of cormorant exploit the cliffs and surrounding waters by the La Jolla Cove; Double-Crested, Pelagic and Brandt’s. I found Brandt’s Cormorants on eggs and raising babies in full public view and took advantage of the opportunity to capture images.

I also sat out on Point La Jolla watching the cormorants doing flybys and looking for those few Pelagic Cormorants in the mix. I captured several subjects in ones-and-zeros.

Birds I met this morning were Brandt’s Cormorant, Heermann’s Gull, Pelagic Cormorant, Brown Pelican.
