Subject: [Tweeters] Banded Cormorant at Ruston Way Date: Jul 11 23:50:45 2017 From: Hans-Joachim Feddern - thefedderns at gmail.com
Does anybody around here color-band cormorants? I observed a Double-crested Cormorant with a yellow band on its left leg this afternoon on the pilings at Dickmann Mill Park, Ruston Way, Tacoma. It was in the company of another unbanded individual. They actually struck me more like Brandt's Cormorants, but had yellow chin patches.
Also on the pilings was a sleeping Glaucous-winged Gull shading her two downy young offsprings. In addition, on another piling an Osprey was craning its neck for a fish worth a dive.
