Default Brandt's Cormorant(?) nesting sight

I like to call these birds the "RedBull" birds.. They take forever to get into flight and when they do finally liftoff, its 100% wings flapping. They generally fly super close to the water (to avoid winds I assume) and rarely glide like many of the other coastal birds. They just seem to be be sprinting at all times.
One of my favorite scenes is when they hop up on the rocks and dry their wings. Im still working on getting a better shot of the this..
C/C welcome and thanks for looking.

Great shots of these interesting birds, good exposures for all the pics, and some good info as well.
