Evening reconnaissance for the next meal, a Brown Pelican works the surface of Humboldt Bay seeking its next herring.
Distinctive features, eerily haunting eyes.
The estuary and lower portions of the Eel River, Humboldt County, CA, holds a few of these interesting creatures. The Double Crested Cormorant is seldom seen compared to the more abundant species of Common Cormorant. For more information about sightings and where to find them, feel free to contact me.
