The Pelagic Cormorant is a small, slender cormorant of the Pacific Coast. Although it is exclusively marine in habits, its name is misleading, since it prefers inshore areas rather than the open ocean.
These Pelagic Cormorants were nesting under the buildings facing the water on Cannery Row in Monterey. They were carrying nesting material, including seaweed, feathers and sticks.
