note the adult eagle and the empty cormorant nests.
There were about 40 Great Cormorants at four sites last year. this site had 6 nests, I thought that perhaps this small group had moved over to Southern Mark and joined what had been 8 nests at that site last year. The trajectory of the population has been down for 25 years and that continued, significantly with the loss of a site, on quarter of the nesting colonies of this species in the U.S.
that makes a total for the year of 38 nests at three sites.
must be climate change.
two adult displaying in this photo perhaps these individuals were from the Brimstone gang and the change in venue set them back in time, or perhaps they are young adults or unpaired birds, potentially due to uneven sex ratio in this small population.
