Brandt's Cormorant (phalacrocorax penicillatus) - 05Sep2015 and 31Mar2016

From Cornell website:
  • In the main part of its range, from California to Washington, the Brandt's Cormorant is tied to the rich food sources associated with upwellings of the California Current. In the nonbreeding season, when the effects of this current diminish, populations redistribute along the coast, occurring where food is locally available.

This one is from a Monterey Bay pelagic with Debbie Shearwater.

Taken in La Jolla, CA.
