Pic Of The Week: Pelagic Cormorant

Pelagic Cormorants shine blue, purple and green, generally much more colorful (yes, colourful too) than the similar Brandt's Cormorant. Obscure fact of the day: the poorly-known (and certainly extinct) Kenyon Shag, whose remains have only been collected in Alaska's Aleutian Islands, may actually be the one and only Pelagic Cormorant. Photographed in Morro Bay, CA.

  1. Interesting looking Cormorants! Their bills are so different from the ones we have here.
