Crafty Cormorants

As I was heading off-island this weekend, I spotted some pelagic cormorants roosting in the pilings at the Anacortes ferry landing. I had seen these birds there once before, but had been unable to take a photo of them because as soon as the ferry gets all the way into its slip the view of the birds is blocked by another piling! These crafty diving seabirds have found a way to have the best of both worlds - a roof over their heads to get out of the rain (and raining it was when we pulled in to Anacortes), and a way to stay out of sight of people on the ferry. This time I was ready for them, though, and got to snap a few photos right from my car while we pulled in to the dock.
