Craig Tooley was at The Sea Ranch photographing the group of Pelagic Cormorant nests. He was startled to see a nest with eggs unattended.
You will see three eggs in the nest. The nests are made on steep cliffs, facing the ocean.
And here the parent has returned to care for the eggs. Several nests now have babies and I'll share that with you soon.
Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Craig's Coast photography, here's the link to his website: ruffimage.com
