I have visited here before. Then I brought biology classes here on field trips. But, it wasn't during the nesting season so there were very few Cormorants. As you can see this is the height of their nesting season and the island is alive with birds.

Nice documentation - their regular spacing is especially apparent in the first shot. We have them nesting on the Channel Islands (Particularly Santa Barbara Islane) down hereoff Southern California, too,but not quite in those numbers. Thanks for posting.

Holy crap Steve (no pun intended)!! That's a lot of cormorants. Nice treat to see such a large congregation and a great spot for watching. Good shooting. I hope you didn't suffer any direct hits......cheers....Don

LOL, that was exactely my first thought.
No direct hits. Most of them weren't flying. There was a considerable noise though. It was pretty awesome.
Thanks for the comments everyone.
