Cormorant Visitor(s)

Last week I took about 6 shots - each progressively closer - of two cormorants at Papago Park. I looked on-line later in the evening to find that it appeared to have been a juvenile double-crested and a neotropic, once considered somewhat rare in Arizona and first spotted/reported about 1980. Lucky me. I went out to the truck to check out my photos, and the screen comes up "No card in camera" meaning I took 6 shots and got none. Oh, well. I'm back to work a new schedule starting Monday, so I'll try to find them again.

For those wondering what cormorants are - they are diving birds. They often sit on rocks or branches after eating and spread their wings out to dry.
