*LOL* Check out this nest!!! These birds (cormorants) will use ANYTHING to build their nests - pieces of plastic fluttering in the breeze - they don't seem to mind. At sunset, you can see flocks of them flying from the city back to the islands to nest, carrying bits and pieces of garbage/plastic/string for the construction job. And their haircuts are another story! *LOL*

LOL, that's a good one. Some of that trash is probably softer than sticks but yeah the hair on the one with it's back to the wind is too funny.

Nice picture..

The female bird is sitting there thinking..."Yeah, my mom told me he wouldn't amount to anything. And now I'm living in squalor." Nice shot.

Sandi,

These birds are just wise in the use of their resources - to quote a Scout motto (I was a Scout leader for a number of years) :) :) Nice shot! Could be used in an anti-litter campaign??

Sandi,

These guys are difficult to expose because of their dark colors. Very good job.

Are you still thinking of coming down to Merritt?
