Good heavens! Who would have thought they'd settle in then there. Is it a commotion?

A great series Carole. I enjoy seeing the close-ups .... then the surrounds!

They sure have a great view from their perch.

If I were smarter, I'd come join your cormorants in this pretty region! LOL! Interesting, the only cormorants I've seen are in Asia, and they are mostly black. This was informative. Thanks, Carole!
