Aug 16, Cormorants, Gulls, VH, Owls:
Empty nests of cormorants Little Roberts, cormorants near the shore.
this years fledgling Great Cormorants
the most I counted was 10 or so, and so at this point these 7 are most of the great cormorant production at Little Roberts this year.
one double-crested in there, and a couple of young herring gulls of the year.
there was a black-back mugging an adult herring gull at Holden ledge.
I think the herring gull was released, though it could not escape on its own.
