Cormorants, always nice to see. These rocks right out from the Aquarium usually have Brandt's, Double-Crested, and sometimes Pelagic cormorants. The Pelagics like to nest under overhangs, so they build sea grass nests under the terraces of the Aquarium. Its fun to lean over the railings and watch them come and go with nesting materials and food for their young.
