A New Observation and a Not New Bird Sighting
While outside today I traveled near something I had not seen (or photographed) before. The new observation was an active double-crested cormorant rookery. My best guess is at least 125-150 birds were in the area of the nest tree/island. To minimize any possible disturbance, I approached from a long distance away, shot some photos with a long lens, and backed away. To see so many cormorants in one spot, with many on their nests, was quite interesting. (Thanks for the info Darrin!)
Double-crested Cormorant Rookery:
Later I saw several birds I have not seen for a two to three years – yellow-headed blackbirds. Today I saw at least five males of this very pretty species.
Male Yellow-headed Blackbird:
Other bird species seen were an adult bald eagle on a utility pole and an adult Canada goose cuddling with its goslings.
