As I was photographing the Pelicans, this Cormorant flew in and started fishing in the water. After a few minutes it surfaced nearby. It came on shore to spread its wings to dry out. It is amazing how long some of them stay in this pose. This one stayed for about 10 minutes. Same pose, just looking left & right, so 1 shot of this tells it all. It also seems the Pelicans do not get too close to the Cormorants, where small shorebirds mingle in with them. Shot with 300mm with a 1.4x teleconverter.
