Description

This bird struck me as smaller than a typical Double-crested Cormorant in the field, possibly with a longer tail than Double-crested, suggesting a Neotropic. It was high-flying and made a circle as it continued on. Double-crested is the default cormorant species in San Diego County, but the first county record of Neotropic occurred in 2014, and they are on the increase around the Salton Sea in nearby Imperial County. Photo 1 of 3.
