Now we know that the chicks of the Double Crested Cormorant are still in their nest in mid August.

Very exciting to capture this in a photo. Great shot.

Wow! I would have thought they'd be out by now ... super shot! Do you think it might be a second brood?

You must be correct Nawitka, I bet these are from a second brood;
