Pelagic Cormorant | Cormoran pélagique | Phalacrocorax pelagicus: As was the case for the bird featured yesterday, this cormorant was part of a small flock foraging for nesting material on Sunset Beach in Vancouver, BC, Canada. As the last photo makes clear, this was clearly a collective nest-building effort!
Taken on June 12, 2015, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.
- Top & Middle: ISO 400 | 300mm | f/5.6 | 1/1600
- Bottom: ISO 400 | 300mm | f/7.1 | 1/2000
