It's Sunday morning, around 10:00. I was wandering along the north shoreline, towards the downtown spillover dam. These birds were very far away, and there was no way to get closer.
Even if I went over to the other side of the river, they would still be too far for a decent closeup, at least with the Power Shot.
I believe I have a pair of cormorants. One may be a White Breasted, or may simply be an immature crested.

The usual.

I was just too slow to catch these babies as they hopped into the water. The whole family was hiding in the bushes, and came out just as another fledgling flock was preparing to set sail.When I checked back to the photo I shot of the first family, they were lurking in the scrub on the shore. The two groups struck an uneasy note, but stayed together just long enough for a spat or two and then they paddled for different parts of the opposite shore.
