Description

Spending our last anniversary on the Central Coast of California was a treat for all the senses. While in Morro Bay, my husband mentioned that he’d read about a heron or egret rookery in the area. We did a lot of driving around before we found what we think was the rookery. We’d been in another town the day before that had an egret rookery that locals told us had been ‘taken over’ by the cormorants. And, that the cormorant’s excrement was killing the trees. This is what we’d noticed in this spot, too. There were dozens of cormorants sitting on or near nests; others coming and going…but, while shooting the two larger cormorants in this photo suddenly, 2 small heads popped up. Dinnertime!
