comorants on display

Lake Merritt is a stop on the bird migration pathway.  Comorants love to sit on the lake perches facing the sun at the end of the day.  Yesterday I drove by and the entire lake was covered with all manner of birds.  Phenomenal.

  3. Wow, thats a lot of cormorants! Round here in Yorkshire the largest birds I get to see are herons and then only perhaps 1 or 2 per month.

  4. That is such an interesting photograph. Are those perches placed in the water for birds to rest on? Best to you in 2011.

  5. That is a great shot. Now my question is, How did you get all those birds to cooperate and pose so nicely? I have a hard time with just one cat. Hear that Sinbad?

  6. The Cormorant was the symbol of the late, great, Packard Motor Car Company.
    The official publication of the Packard Club is The Cormorant.
