Pelagic Cormorant

Phalacrocorax pelagicus

Description:

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.

Notes:

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.
