Napping Cormorant. I looked in my Western Birds book and he wasn't there. There are some 40 species of cormorants and shags, most of which I didn't find in pictures so "cormorant" will have to do. In any case, no amount of phony bird calling on my part could convince this little guy to disturb his nap and smile for the camera or, at least, open his eyes... So, here he is, the "napping cormorant."
