Brant’s Cormorants in December

This is a Cormorant found on the west coast of North America. These Brant’s Cormorants were taken in Monterey, California.

Love those blue eyes, great shots of the Cormorants!

Nice picture - the black of the feathers is always hard to expose correctly.

I wonder if all species of cormorants have these blue eyes?

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

Striking blue eye in these cormorants! I am wondering now if our cormorants have such a blue eye! Usually I focus on their drying feathers! They look like a huge fan spread out!

The cormorants that I'm familiar with (Brants, Double Crested, Pelagic, Great) all have these wonderfully blue colored eyes. Pretty cool.

I saw Brandts in California too Steve, but I didn't remember how 'oily' they looked. You captured that well, particularly in the first shot!

Very nice photos of a Cormorant species we don't see here in the southeast.
Love that slick black look.
